Celebrate Farmer’s Market Week with more markets

It doesn’t surprise me a bit that the US Department of Agriculture announced a 9.6 percent increase in National Farmers Market Directory listings. Oh, and happy National Farmer’s Market Week!

I’m also sure that plenty of markets are not even in the directory, a database published here.  The latest count identifies 7,864 farmers markets operating throughout the United States.

As for North Carolina, we’re among the states leading the push, boasting the 10th-most farmers markets for the third year in a row. The News & Observer did a nice piece about our markets, though reported from the State Farmers’ Market, which isn’t as local as many others.
