USDA/MA Farmers’ Market Week

August 3, 2014 - August 9, 2014

The Patrick Administration has proclaimed August 3rd-9th Massachusetts Farmers’ Market Week, calling farmers’ markets across the state “essential to the vitality of Massachusetts farms and communities.”

With over 250 farmers’ markets open this summer and fall, shoppers in communities across the state – urban, suburban, and rural alike – have easy access to an array of freshly-harvested fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers, as well as local farm items such as maple syrup, honey, eggs, meat, poultry, baked goods, wine, jams and jellies.

Farmers’ markets are part of the cultural tradition of the Commonwealth,” according to the proclamation, which also says markets, “enhance community spirit and civic pride.” The full proclamation can be read here.

Massachusetts Farmers’ Market Week coincides with National Farmers’ Market Week as USDA celebrates our nation’s thousands of farmers markets, farmers who make them possible and the communities that host them.
