We’re celebrating Farmers Markets during National Farmers Market Week and Mass Farmers Market Week.
Our discussion explains what role farmers markets play in invigorating our food systems and in supporting local economies both for local farmers and in keeping money local.

Steven included mention of the Farm Cube program, supported by Mass Farmers Markets and developed by Steven and Sarah Howard at Place Practice.
