Why Farmers Markets?

Foodwise farmers markets have remained open as an essential service throughout the pandemic, supporting local farms and providing vital access to fresh, healthy food for our communities. Farmers markets provide safe, outdoor shopping experience, and are critical to long-term food security. By shopping at your local farmers market, you help stimulate local economies, preserve farmland and rural livelihoods, increase access to fresh food, and support healthy communities.

Here are our 10 Reasons to Support Farmers Markets. Declare your love and support of farmers markets by spreading the word!
