National Farmers Market Week is August 2nd-8th this summer, and the Farmers Market Coalition wants to help its members get ready! In celebration of this 10th annual event, FMC is launching “Markets Are Up!,” a campaign designed to provide tools that Farmers Markets can use at the local level to talk about their many benefits.
Using three messages– Healthy Investment, Green Economy, and Market Value, FMC is offering resources that will help market managers reinforce the message of farmers markets being good for farmers, for consumers, and for communities!
ECOBAGS.com has partnered with FMC to offer discounts to member Farmers Markets and to donate a portion of their purchases back to their national organization, to support the fabulous technical support, brochures, nutritional information and networking that they provide to their members.
We believe that stronger farmers markets build stronger communities! We also believe that nutritious food, grown close to home, is the best thing for our famililies and our towns. So eat well and enjoy the harvest! And share this information with your local farmers market; they may not know about the Farmers Market Coalition.
