We did it! We produced a terrific report showing key metrics demonstrating the positive impact of farmers markets in the Austin area. Here are some highlights from the media coverage. If you know of more media coverage, please add them in the comments below.
- Hays Free Press, Local area farmers markets help generate $3.3M in sales
- Spectrum News video coverage at Texas Farmers Market (way to go Nora!)
- Elgin Courier, Report shows farmers’ markets bring money to the local economy (behind paywall)
For your reference and social links, here is our full report and release. Here’s a pic of those of us who joined Austin Mayor Adler for the proclamation celebrating National Farmers’ Market week. (We loved our very personal shoe choices!)
