Eating healthy is even more important during this time, and farmers markets are changing with the times.
The Arkansas Farmers Market Association partnered with the Arkansas Center for Obesity Prevention in early 2020. Increasing access to healthy, local foods is a vital part of the mission of AFMA, ArCOP and the Arkansas Department of Agriculture. No one does that better than our state's Farmers Markets. It's why ArCOP and the AFMA are a great fit.
The Arkansas Department of Agriculture has collaborated with a number of organizations to create a map of resources for local food during the COVID-19 pandemic.
