Farmers’ Markets have many benefits, among them increasing fresh fruit and vegetable consumption, directly connecting consumers with farmers, and economic benefits for participating farmers and communities where farmer’s markets are located. Increased interest by consumers in local foods has led to the continuing expansion of the number of farmers’ markets nationwide.
Did you know? In 2009, the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Agricultural Marketing Service determined the number of farmers’ markets to be 5,274. Compared with 1998, this number nearly doubled. Most of the farms that sell through farmers’ markets and other direct-to-consumer channels are small farms with sales of less than $50,000. Direct to consumer sales amounted to 1.2 billion dollars across the nation, according to the 2007 Census of Agriculture.
