Farmers' Market Open in Winter 2017/18

Nov 24, 2017

Winter is the time to hibernate but some of our farmers’ markets are still open!

Farmers’ markets are continuing to grow in popularity as a destination to buy local food. According to a recent study conducted by the Greenbelt Farmers’ Market Network, demand for fresh vegetables is up 76% in 2015 (up from 63% in 2009). Not only is demand growing but 29% of farm vendors are also reporting that a greater share of revenues are coming from market sales and 63% of farm vendors report that markets are helping them connect more with other buyers.
