National Farmers Market Week


This week is National Farmers Market Week, and the Jacksonville Farmers Marketis ready to accommodate shoppers. The market is Florida’s oldest outdoor farmer’s market, which makes it easy to social distance. The farmers market just west of Downtown accepts SNAP/P-EBT benefits. We spoke to market Manager Greg Tison about some of his favorite vendors, the market’s economic impact, and the importance of National Farmers Market Week.
