The Farmers Market Panel at Gastrofest in Jacksonville Florida MOCA Jax

Farmers’ Markets are not only a place to buy fresh produce and goods each week. They also provide a regional hub for small business development, food information, and community gathering.

Learn what would happen to our local economy if every household in our region spent just $5 a week supporting local farms and artisans, and what questions you should be asking on your next visit to the market. Join Edible Northeast Florida as they host a panel exploring the role of Farmers’ Markets in our local food system.
