Let’s Celebrate National Farmers Market Week!
At the beginning of every August, farmers markets across the nation celebrate National Farmers Market Week, highlighting their role in supporting healthy communities, vibrant food systems, and local economies. Celebrate with FRESHFARM from Sunday, August 7th to Saturday, August 13th, 2022!
FRESHFARM operates 26 markets in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, making it the third largest network of farmers markets in the country. Annually, FRESHFARM markets generate over $20 million in revenue for more than 200 farmers and producers in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Want to join the celebration? Visit a FRESHFARM market to play market bingo, enjoy live music, thank a farmer, and try a new food. Discover new markets through FRESHFARM’s Market Passport program, and win prizes along the way!
