Farmers Markets are localities where farmers, family members and hired helpers come to sell farm fresh products.  They may be state, city or community operated. Each of these markets will have their own set of rules providing standards for both farmers and consumers to assure fresh, local, quality produce is available.

Farmers markets provide an opportunity for growers to sell directly to consumers, chefs, food purveyors and food designers. They are a place of business as well as a location for building community, allowing consumers and farmers to become more closely connected. Spending money at farmers markets supports a local economy and those involved in farming.
