Farmers Market Week is Here!
Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, from the USDA, has
proclaimedAug. 6-12 to be National Farmers Market Week. This is the 18th year USDA has supported local producers by encouraging families to meet, and buy from, farmers and vendors at their local market.
This annual event, sponsored by the USDA, highlights the important role farmers markets play in our nation's food system. And we invite you to join the celebration!
At farmers markets, we meet our community, access affordable, healthy produce, and support family farmers who overwhelmingly use farming practices that protect our environment. These are all benefits that impact each of
us, and are all reasons to support farmers markets not just this week, but all
Remember, every day we eat, we owe our thanks to a farmer. Whether you spend a little or a lot, pay a visit to a farmer’s market this week, and show them just how much they're truly appreciated.
