It Is National Farmers' Market Week!

National Farmers’ Market Week begins today and many people may be visiting their local farmers’ market for the first time.  Last year, the Alliance for Food and Farming developed a guide for helping shoppers select vendors who grow food responsibly and safely.  While farmers’ markets offer a unique and fun shopping experience, a few simple questions can help determine how the food is grown and produced.

So, enjoy the bounty offered by your local farmers’ markets and meeting the farmers working hard every day to grow healthful, nutritious foods.  And, use the AFF’s guide to learn more about some things to consider when choosing a vendor.

To find a farmers’ market located near you, visit the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farmers’ Market Directory.

Read, learn, choose but eat more organic and conventionally grown fruits and veggies everyday for better health and a longer life.
