How to find the nearest farmers marketOne of my favorite things to do when I travel (and while I’m home) is visit a local farmers market. At a farmers market, I not only get fresh, organic food but also get a sense of place. Well, inside the U.S., I now will no longer have to rely on just stumbling upon a farmers market thanks to the National Farmers Market Directory, a United States Department of Agriculture project. You just insert the U.S. zip code of your location or where you’re headed and choose a radius (in miles) to bring up the nearest farmers market and a list of other options.

From the page: “The Farmers Market Directory lists markets that feature two or more farm vendors selling agricultural products directly to customers at a common, recurrent physical location. Maintained by the Agricultural Marketing Service, the Directory is designed to provide customers with convenient access to information about farmers market listings to include: market locations, directions, operating times, product offerings, accepted forms of payment, and more.”

    Hi, Johnny!
    Thank you for providing us with an easy way to locate Farmers Markets wherever we travel.
    Do you know of a site that will identify U-Pick Farms?While staying in Phoenix recently, we visited Sedona and wanted to pick oranges on our drive back to Phoenix. We had some difficulty but finally located a farm in Surprise, AZ. This is wonderful Activity for both kids and adults.
