Safe Shopping at the Farmers' Market

June 1st marks the start of the majority of farmers' markets in Maryland.  This year, things look a little different at the farmers' market, and it is important to help consumers shop safely to access fresh fruits and vegetables in their community.  We are most fortunate that in Maryland, farmers' markets are considered essential food access sites, and can remain open this season.

To help consumers feel safer shopping at the farmers' market, to support local farmers and the local economy, and to encourage best safety and public health practices, FSNE/Maryland SNAP-Ed has created videos to promote safe shopping, to encourage consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables, and to encourage using food supplement program benefits when shopping at the farmers' market to make the best use of food resources.
