This week is National Farmers Market Week and communities across the country are celebrating their local farmers markets. Now more than ever, farmers markets serve as anchors across American cities, positively influencing the communities they serve. They do this by increasing access to fresh nutritious food, stimulating local economies and preserving America’s rural livelihoods and farmland. Farmers markets provide communities with a healthy food environment. They’re places where farmers and neighbors come together to educate each other about cooking, nutrition and farming. With abundant fruit and vegetables, farmers markets help increase fruit and vegetable consumption.
