Farmer’s Markets and Libraries

Farmer’s markets and libraries- an unexpected and yet perfect partnership. Both libraries and farmer’s markets strive to make the community a better place, so why not combine the two? There are many ways that the local farmer’s market can partner with the libraries in their communities. Many libraries play host to a farmer’s market during the summer months, allowing the two to benefit from each other. Of course, it is not always possible for the library to host the farmer’s market since the library may not have available space. In this case, the library can visit the local market. Check out this article, published by NYLA, to learn more about the partnership between farmer’s markets and libraries.
