National Farmers Market Week
August 6-12, 2023
Monadnock Food Co-op joins partners across the country in celebrating National Farmers Market Week from August 6-12.
Over the past year, our farmers market community has continued to showcase adaptability in our rapidly changing world. While farmers markets have always been essential to our local food systems, in this moment of widespread changes, we want to also recognize the ways in which farmers markets are essential tools for shaping our worlds, and how they bring about important opportunities for us to learn, grow, and work together. More than ever, we need places where people can come together. Farmers markets are designed in partnership with the people they serve, creating a space where market operators, farmers, shoppers, and neighbors can collaborate to meet the evolving needs of our communities.
National Farmers Market Week is an occasion to highlight how farmers markets are changing the way we eat, shop, connect, and more!
