Interest in farmers markets seems to be stronger than ever, thanks in part to the momentum of the buy-local food movement.

More and more people are interested in knowing where their food comes from, and they’re looking to connect with farmers in their area. Farmers markets offer a central location for buyers and sellers. This is welcome news for farmers, and it has led to more farmers markets sprouting up across the state to meet consumer demand.

On this week’s program, Commissioner Troxler and Rhonda talk about the importance of farmers markets and how you can find one near you.
