The National Farmers Market Directory (NFMD) helps connect growers, vendors & various small businesses with consumers in their own local community. Many farmers markets will include farm animals for kids and host fun activities so that the entire family can enjoy the experience.
The Farmers Market Directory provides consumers with convenient access to information about farmers market listings such as location, operating times, reviews and more, to better connect farmers & buyers, and enhance awareness of available local food sources.

For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
A CSA farmer will offer a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically, the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included such as fruit, eggs, milk, cheese or beef. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. Learn more from Local Harvest and find a CSA farmer near you.
Did you know that more than 20% of the fruits and vegetables grown in America never make it off the farm because they aren’t perfect enough for grocery store standards? Crazy, right?
