USDA Farmers Market Reopens for 25th Market Season

The USDA Farmers Market returns next month for its 25th market season. The annual Friday market will reopen on Friday, May 6, 2022, and run through October. Deputy Agriculture Secretary Jewel Bronaugh, says the reopening “is an opportunity to celebrate the important role that farmers markets continue to play in meeting the growing demand for local fresh and healthy food.” Located outside the USDA Headquarters in Washington, DC, the market serves as USDA’s own “living laboratory” for farmers market operations across the country. The market supports the local economy, increases marketing opportunities for farmers and small businesses, provides access to an assortment of local and regional sourced products, and increases access to healthy, affordable fresh food. The USDA Farmers Market promotes the incorporation of healthy fresh produce in consumers food choices through its unique educational style program, VegU. The commodity-centered education program partners with USDA to market and promote the consumption of commodities through short educational sessions and in-market recipe demonstrations.
