Share |
*For those new to this blog, every Monday, blog writer Kathy Swift shares an agricultural website of interest with readers.*

In honor of National Farmers' Market week, today's agricultural website of interest is the Farmers' Market Coalition (FMC). The mission of the FMC is “to strengthen farmers' markets for the benefit of farmers, consumers, and communities.”

The specific goals of the Farmers' Market Coalition website are:

* To serve as an information center for farmers markets.
* To be a voice for North American farmers market advocacy.
* To foster strong state and regional farmers market associations.
* To bring private and public support to the table to sustain farmers markets in the long term, for the benefit of farmers, consumers, and communities.
* To promote farmers markets to the public.
* To develop and provide educational programming and networking opportunities for farmers market managers and farmers market vendors.

The site also has a link to multiple article resources, such as food safety, farm business and marketing and funding and grants.
