Learn about Farmer's Markets

Farmers' markets are an integral part of the urban/farm linkage and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farm. Farmers' markets allow consumers to have access to locally grown, farm fresh produce, enables farmers the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their customers, and cultivate consumer loyalty with the farmers who grow the produce. Today, there are nearly 4,800 farmers' markets operating throughout the nation. Below you can find useful resources and information on farmers' markets throughout the country.
