If you are looking for healthy, fresh food, grown locally there are more options than ever before. This website helps you to find local farmers' markets. A farmers' market is a physical (not an online) marketplace that sells locally grown foods from local farmers and growers direct to consumers. Farmers' markets range from indoors and year round operations to outdoor parking lot collections of vendors meeting once a week in summer only. Typically there are many booths, tables and tents where the farmers (and other vendors) sell their homegrown fruit, vegetables, homemade food products, like applesauce, applebutter, jams, jellies, salsa, pickles, sauces, meats and often artisan products from artists and other small businesses. Farmers' markets reflect the local culture, season and produce. Don't confuse a true farmers' market with corporate chain stores that may call themselves a farm market,
Our listings come from a variety of sources: state agriculture departments, consumers writing in to recommend a market and the markets themselves. We update and add listings every day.

They are more likely to listen to your needs and be socially responsible, than a giant ag farm in a foreign country.
