I read in the Interfaith Sustainable Food Collaborative newsletter that national Farmers' Market Week is August 2-8. The web site http://farmersmarketcoalition.org/programs/national-farmers-market-week/ reminds us that farmers' markets "preserve farmland, stimulate local economies, increase access to nutritious food, support healthy communities, and promote sustainability."
There are also many downloadable resources on the site. I love the social media cheat sheet - canned tweets to post! Perhaps more seriously (I mean, tweets are serious for some) there are tips for advocacy, for "bonding with your legislators."
Which farmers' market will you visit?
And with all these food related days, weeks, months and events, should we have a calendar to capture them? or is there one?
