HAPPY National Farmers Market Week!

National Farmers Market WeekAs the bounty of summer rolls in to the market, the Chisago City Farmers Market is celebrating National Farmers Market Week on August 12th!

This year marks the 17th annual National Farmers Market Week to honor and celebrate the important role that farmers markets play in local economies.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says “Farmers markets are an important part of strong local and regional food systems that connect farmers with new customers and grow rural economies. In many areas, they are also expanding access to fresh, healthy food for people of all income levels. National Farmers Market Week recognizes the growth of these markets and their role in supporting both urban and rural communities.”

Elanor Starmer, the Administrator of USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) says “Farmers markets are a gathering place where you can buy locally produced food, and at the same time, get to know the farmer and story behind the food you purchase. These types of markets improve earning potential for farmers and ranchers, building stronger community ties and access to local foods.”

There are 8,500 farmers market in the United States, including over 172 in Minnesota. Farmers markets are vital to their communities, serving as a marketplace for food entrepreneurs, a gathering place for citizens, and a source of nutritious locally grown whole foods. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Minnesota Grown program supports farmers markets and agricultural producers across the state by connecting consumers with locally grown foods.

National Farmers Market Week is a great time to visit Chisago City Farmers Market and celebrate all that CCFM brings to our community!


Lovely day at the Market!
