Farmer's Market Directory

We choose to buy some of our groceries at local farmer's markets, mainly because we like the food, but also to support our local farmers. However, it can sometimes be difficult to find out details, such as dates, times and location for the farmers' markets, since there is often no formal marketing. Recently, I found a Farmer's Market Search site that provides some of the information I need.

The site is compiled by the USDA through voluntary submissions by third party sources. Since it is voluntary, it may not be complete. For us, however, it is a great starting point and saves time versus doing numerous Internet searches to find a farmer's market.
