23 Aug 2017 What a Farmers Market Can Do
For all their liveliness and colorful abundance, there’s much more to farmers markets than meets the eye. They create access to affordable, fresh, locally-grown food, and provide important public gathering space. They also help restore a crucial link between rural and urban America, promote the health of the environment, and stimulate small business and local economies. Farmers markets create 13 full-time jobs for every $1 million of revenue.
