We’re celebrating this week at the BRFM with special deals, activities, games, prize giveaways, and more! Here’s what all the hoopla is about…

National Farmers Market Week is an annual celebration sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture that highlights the important role farmers markets play in the nation’s food system.

Farmers markets benefit us all in many ways! They stimulate local economies, increase access to fresh, healthy food, promote sustainable farming practices that protect our water and soil, and preserve American farmland. However, none of these benefits are possible without the farmers.

Come on out this Saturday and shop for fresh healthy local food and don’t forget to thank our farmers for the contribution they make to the well-being of our local community.

We’ve cooked up some great ways to let you celebrate with us.
