Farmers' markets serve as integral links between urban, suburban, and rural communities, affording farmers and their consumers the opportunity to interact. The popularity of farmers' markets continues to rise, as more and more consumers discover the joys of shopping for unique ingredients sold directly from the farm, and the pleasure of buying familiar products in their freshest possible state.

To further the expansion and awareness of farmers' markets and the contributions farmers make to daily life in America, take the opportunity to celebrate the benefits of farmers' markets and the bountiful production of our nation's farmers, who provide for our needs and are among the best stewards of our land.
