USDA Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has officially designated August 7th-13th National Farmers Market Week! 


The National Farmers Market Week is celebrated across the country from August 7 through August 13, 2016. It’s a time to celebrate the farmers, ranchers, and local food producers as well as the communities that make them happen. With over 8,500 farmers markets across the nation, it is easy to find a market near you. The National Farmers Market Directory makes it convenient to find farmers markets in your area with weekday, weekend, and evening options to celebrate National Farmers Market Week:
