From the Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA, Public Affairs Office: 

National Farmers Market Week Proclamation ImageNational Farmers Market Week (August 2 – 8, 2015) is a week-long celebration of our nation’s farmers markets, the farmers and ranchers who make them possible, and the communities that host them. This year marks the 16th annual National Farmers Market Week recognizing the important role that farmers markets play in our local food economies.

To promote National Farmers Market Week, we encourage farmers market managers and community leaders to plan an event at their local farmers market during the week. It is a great way to show why we love the farmers, vendors and the customers that make the market great!

Attached is a high resolution copy of the proclamation issued by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. USDA also issued a press release with a link to the proclamation. AMS wanted to share these with stakeholders in support of National Farmers Market Week.

USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Administrator Anne Alonzo will kick-off National Farmers Market Week on Saturday, August 1, 2015, at the Santa Fe Farmers Market in New Mexico. AMS will also host a special event the USDA Farmers Market onFriday, August 7th, held just outside the USDA Headquarters in Washington, DC.

The celebration can be shared on social media with the #FarmMktWk [hashtag] on Twitter @USDA_AMS and facebook.com/USDA.

If you have already planned a special event for National Farmers Market Week, please pass on this information to other businesses and organizations who would enjoy celebrating our farmers, ranchers and producers that are bringing fresh, local food to our communities and the consumers that support them!
