Find Fresh and Local Foods

Apparently Aug. 5 - Aug. 11 was National Farmers Market Week. If, like me, you missed it, you can instead check out the USDA National Farmers Market Directory, available at farmersmarkets.usda.gov. You can search for markets based on location, available products, and types of payment accepted, including participation in federal nutrition programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly food stamps). Directory features allow users to locate markets based on proximity to zip code, mapping directions and links to active farmers market websites.
