Farmers Markets are one of the fastest growing sectors of the food economy in the U.S.
Notice on the map the concentration of farmers markets in some areas of the countries. A few of the markets in New England are reporting that farmers seem to be competing with each other for the same customers. The USDA reports that less than one-percent of the population buys food direct from farmers on a regular basis. So how will new farmers find customers in these regions? One way is to bring the food to the people!
