17th annual
NATIONAL FARMERS MARKET WEEK - August 7th-13th, 2016 

The Farmers Market Coalition would like to ask everyone to help promote local farmers markets, and celebrate National Farmers Market Week from August 7th-13th.

Communities across the country will celebrate their local farmers markets during National Farmers Market Week. The impact of these farmer-to-consumer transactions is greater than it appears on the surface. Now more than ever, farmers markets serve as anchors across American communities, positively influencing community health and wealth. Markets result in more viable regional economies and local farm businesses, increased access to fresh, nutritious food, and stronger social networks that help keep communities healthy.

By the beginning of 2016, there were more than 8,500 farmers markets in the U.S—that is 50% more than just five years ago. As these markets become more established, they offer more services and benefits to their communities. 
 
Farmers markets help the community in the following ways (PDF):

  • Preserve America’s rural livelihoods and farmland - Between 2007 and 2012, America lost more than 95,000 mostly mid-sized family farms, while the average age of American farmers increased to nearly 60. Farmers market serve as business incubators that allow farmers, ranchers, and entrepreneurs to keep overheads low and test new products and markets.
  • Stimulate local economies - Farmers markets and other locally owned retailers return more than three times as much of their revenue to the local economy than do chain competitors. This “economic multiplier effect” helps create jobs and boosts economic activity.
  • Increase access to fresh, nutritious food - The number of farmers markets and farmers accepting Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits has increased 40% on average every year since 2009.17!With affordable prices and special programs for low-income people, markets are expanding access to fresh, nutritious food.
  • Support healthy communities - Farmers markets provide communities with a healthy food environment. They are places where farmers and neighbors come together to educate each other about nutrition, cooking, and farming. With abundant produce, farmers markets help increase fruit and vegetable consumption..
  • Promote sustainability - Farmers markets create new business opportunities for farmers interested in selling sustainably-produced food. This helps protect the natural environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.
