Why Farmers Markets?

In celebration of National Farmers Market Week, August 5-11, 2018, we are highlighting the many reasons why farmers markets are more than just a place to find fresh, local food. Across the country, evidence shows farmers markets are significantly improving the health and well-being of their community, economy, and environment. And as support for farmers markets continue to grow, so will the ways their communities prosper. Posted by Daniel Blaustein-Rejto  on July 28, 2015 on the Farmers Market Coalition website.
