Find Your Farmers' Market

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 11:53 AM

After reading about the practices of environmentally-uncaring industrial farms, you may be hungry for an alternative source of agriculture. Look no further than your local farmers' market, where local farmers gather to sell fresh produce at reasonable prices directly to members of the community. Farmers' markets have exploded in popularity recently, and the number of farmers' markets in the US has nearly doubled in the last five years.  Luckily, the USDA has compiled a map of farmers' markets across all 50 states (and a few colonies) based on the Google Map platform to keep track of them all. Be amazed as your city becomes pocked with farmers' markets you had no idea existed!
