National Farmer’s Market Week- Aug 4-10th

national farmer's market weekIt’s official! Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsak has released a proclamation stating that August 4th through 10th of 2013 will be National Farmers Market Week. – This is a great week to get out there and experience all the wonderful fresh fruits, vegetables and local grown products at your Farmer’s Market.  I personally have been going to one of our local Farmer’s Market for the last several years.  The amazing locally grown produce I am able to find is amazing.  This is also a chance for you to support your local farmers and small businesses. As many aspiring and established small businesses also setup at Farmer’s Markets displaying and selling their products.
