HAPPY NATIONAL

FARMERS MARKET WEEK!

Some of our favorite facts about farmers markets (FMs):

  • FMs are a win for producers: nearly 100% of the income stays in the hands of producers, compared with 16¢ for every dollar of sales at traditional retail outlets
  • FM food travels fewer than 200 miles (and less than that for the ABFM) from farm to customer, compared with the average 1,500 miles from producer to supermarket
  • FMs provide low-risk entry points for new/beginning farmers and producers
  • FMs educate the public, and increased access to fresh food for food-insecure folks (in 2017, >$22 million in SNAP dollars were redeemed at FMs); the ABFM boosts SNAP buying power with a modest "match" to SNAP benefits
