We preview this year's event with Sabeen Perwaiz, TEDxJacksonville executive producer, and event speaker Dane Grey, president of Elite Parking Services of America.

National Farmers Market Week

Next week marks the 17th annual National Farmers Market Week.

It’s a celebration sponsored by the Department of Agriculture that highlights the important role farmers markets play in the nation’s food system.

We discuss it with Amy Robb, publisher of the magazine Edible Northeast Florida, and John Silveira, director of the Riverside Arts Market.
