Reclaiming Spaces: One Farmers Market at a Time

 

By Lindsay Buchannan of the U.S. Department of Agriculture

USDA - U.S. Department of AgricultureWashington, DC – Consumer demand for local food is driving the expansion of farmers markets into places of all shapes, sizes, and locations. Ferry terminals, train depots, grain mills and shipping containers all can, and are, housing farmers markets across the country.

There are 8,268 markets listed in the USDA’s National Farmers Market Directory, a 76 percent increase since 2008. Managed by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service, the directory listings reflect continued growth and demand in every region of the country. Today farmers markets are as diverse as the communities they serve and can be found in unique rural and urban spaces across the country.

The Ferry Building dominated the busy port as a main boat terminus. As cars and highways became more popular, the terminal went into disrepair. Now, farmers and vendors have revived the space, making the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market one of California’s most famous farmers markets. (Photo courtesy of Jim Forest.)

Tennessee Democrats call for action on Medicaid expansion

 

Yesterday marks the one year anniversary of Governor Haslam’s “Tennessee plan” speech

Nashville, TN –  At a press conference yesterday, House Democrats joined together to mark the one year anniversary of Governor Haslam’s “Tennessee plan” speech to the General Assembly. Democrats called on the Governor and legislature to stop delaying and expand Medicaid now.

“It is well past time for Tennessee to join Arkansas, Iowa, Indiana and Pennsylvania in submitting a plan to the federal government to expand Medicaid,” said Rep. Sherry Jones (D-Nashville). “While the ‘Tennessee plan’ will probably be less efficient and beneficial than a traditional Medicaid expansion, any plan would be better than no plan at all.”
