Use AFF's Food Safety Guide During National Farmers' Market Week

8/9/2017 11:12 AM

It’s National Farmers’ Market Week so now is a great time to visit your local market and load up on fruits and veggies. But, make sure to take along the Alliance for Food and Farming’s Guide to Food Safety At Farmers’ Markets which was developed to help shoppers select market vendors who grow food responsibly and safely. 

Visiting a farmers’ market is a great way to try different fruits and veggies, learn new ways to incorporate produce into your daily diet, find new recipes and talk directly to farmers!  So, enjoy the bounty offered by your local farmers’ markets and use the AFF’s guide to learn more about things to consider when choosing a vendor.

To find a farmers’ market located near you, visit the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farmers’ Market Directory.

Read, learn, choose but eat more organic and conventionally grown fruits and veggies everyday for better health and a longer life.
