Bexley Farmers' Market: August 4th

Ohio Local Foods Week

Ohio Local Foods Week has begun, and National Farmers Market Week is just around the corner! Join us at the Bexley Farmers' Market this week and next to celebrate local food producers, community, educational health programs, and farmers markets. Below is a list of fun facts on Ohio Agriculture and links to more information on this and next weeks celebration!

  •    "Agriculture is Ohio’s number one industry contributing jobs for one in seven Ohioans, and more than $107 billion to the state's economy. (ohioproud.org)
  • Ohio ranks in the top ten states for direct sales to consumers represented by a wide variety of food products including but not limited to eggs, milk, cheese, honey, maple syrup, beverages, bread and other artisan products, fresh, frozen canned and dried vegetables, fruits and meats. (USDA Ag Census, 2012.) 
  • One in six Ohioans is food insecure and lacks access to fresh, local, healthy food."
