It's official: August 5-11 has been proclaimed National Farmers Market Week by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns. Now is the perfect time to check out the markets near you and show your support for local farmers.

After all, where can you find fresher produce? Why would you pay top-dollar for California carrots when you live in Missouri? They're the same pointy, orange roots either way, except one has wasted gallons of fuel in its cross-country trek and comes packaged in an unnecessary plastic bag. A dollar spent at the local farmers market is a dollar not spent in support of corporate farms.



To find a farmers market near you, look no further than Local Harvest. Simply enter your zip code for a list of organizations and their schedules.
