Healthier Markets – A Resource Guide

A healthy farmers market is about more than locally grown food – it also means a clean market environment and promoting positive life choices! Farmers’ markets have community-focused missions that promote healthy lifestyles and strong communities. There are simple steps market organizers can take to advance their mission and make sure their markets are a cleaner and safer environment for everyone.

Below are resources to promote Healthier Markets from our friends at Healthy Communities of the Capital Area, Healthy Androscoggin, and Maine SNAP-Ed.
