This week is officially Massachusetts Farmers’ Market Week. The official proclamation from Governor Patrick “urges all the citizens of the Commonwealth to take cognizance of this event and participate fittingly in its observance.”
Observe this week by checking out a farmers’ market near you this week; many are hosting special activities to mark the occasion.
This is especially fitting, as Massachusetts was recently ranked sixth in the nation by the USDA for the number of farmers’ markets we have (currently 228).
