Farmers Market

Farmers Market

Farmers markets are a place for local farmers, and sometimes local artists, to sell their products directly to their communities, often including fruits, vegetables, meat, and locally baked or prepared foods. Farmers markets can increase community access to locally-grown/produced foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and prepared foods. They can also bring activity into an area, and increase income for farmers and vendors. Farmers markets can also increase a sense of community, improve connections between farmers and community members, and increase how much local food is grown and eaten in the community.
