National Farmers Market week Tag

National Farmers Market Week happens annually during the first week of August. This year, as we celebrate farmers markets, I found myself reflecting on the adaptability and flexibility that our farmers markets have provided for small to mid-scale farmers and consumers throughout the country. Here in Montana, our farmers market managers worked tirelessly to keep people safe while providing a crucial marketing channel for farmers, ranchers, and artisans in 2020.
