The Daily Dirt

It’s National Farmers Market Week!

And the American Farmland Trust has this amazing graphic that details how farmers markets can benefit growers and our communities. The Trust is also running a cool campaign where folks can pledge to support their local market by spending $10 a week there.

AFT_Infographic-long-GMAs you’ll note in the graphic, $10 spent at your farmers market can put up to $7.80 back in your community. A¬†2010 University of Georgia study found that if everyone in our state spent $10 at their local farmers market, it would pumo over $1.9 billion back into Georgia’s economy.

It’s going to be a farmers market lovefest all week over at our Facebook page, so stay tuned for more reasons why they’re the bee’s knees!
