Abstract:
North Carolina’s farmers markets are growing, to the benefit of local communities. North Carolina has the 10th most farmers’ markets per state in the country with over 250 local markets. The markets often fill a basic need for fresh produce, provide a connection to safer, healthier, locally sourced food, and have encouraged the growth of small farms. The markets also provide the benefit of increasing a sense of community in a town.
