Across the nation, farmers markets have been growing in popularity. This is evident through the rise of the focus on shopping local. A farmers market features foods sold directly by local farmers to consumers. Farmers markets typically consist of booths, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, where farmers sell fruits, vegetables, meats, and sometimes local prepared foods, beverages, or crafts. They are a great way for a community to come together and for families to support local business. Find out where there is a farmers market in your Jacksonville neighborhood!
