“Local governments can promote access to fresh produce, support local farmers, create community gathering places, and revitalize neighborhoods by supporting farmer’s markets.

This guide provides and overview of farmers’ market policy issuesand community tested best practices. It also features a set of complementary model land use policies for comprehensive plans and zoning ordinances. We wrote this guide for local government staff (planners, public health departments, etc.), elected officials, farmers’ market managers, food policy councils, and other stakeholders to provie practical guidance and tools that communities can customize and create more farmers’ market opportunities and to ensure their long-term viability.”
