Delaware Farmers’ Markets generate $3 million in sales
Posted On: February 16, 2018
Delaware Farmers’ markets in 2017 generated more than $3 million in sales, the second highest season since the state began recording sales a decade ago. A total of 21 community-run markets contributed to the sales.
“These numbers are a reflection of the positive relationship that Delaware residents and those visiting our state have with our family farmers,” said Secretary of Agriculture Michael T. Scuse. “Consumers know food purchased at our farmers’ market are grown locally, picked fresh, and delivered that day by the farm. Not only do they have the opportunity to learn how their food is grown directly from Delaware farmers, but they are able to make a positive impact on the economy by keeping it local.”
