Farmers Markets Gain In Popularity In U.S.

NEW YORK - OCTOBER 02: Amish farmer John Stoltzfoos (R) talks with a customer at the Union Square farmers market October 2, 2009 in New York City. Over the past decade, neighborhood farmers markets have increased 71 percent in the U.S., where consumers can purchase items from local producers. In July, the Department of Agriculture reported that almost 4,900 markets now operate across the country, an increase of about 5% from the end of last year. Concerns over global food safety and an interest in purchasing locally have helped spur the increase along with citizens becoming more "home-centered" in the struggling economy.
