National Farmers Market Week is an annual celebration of the importance of local farmers markets to our economy and community.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and farmers markets are one of the best ways for them to sell their products and services. Not only do they get to interact directly with their customers, but they also benefit from the support of the broader community.
Shopping at a farmers market is a unique experience that cannot be found at traditional grocery stores. You can find fresh produce, meat, and dairy products as well as baked goods, jams, and jellies, all made by local artisans. In addition, you’re supporting your local farmers and businesses when you buy from them.
This year, let’s celebrate National Farmers Market Week by showing our support for these important institutions in our community. There are many ways to do this, such as visiting your local market more often, telling your friends and family about it, or even becoming a vendor yourself!
