To better connect farmers and buyers, and enhance awareness of available local food sources, USDA has expanded on the popular and comprehensive National Farmers Market Directory. Household shoppers and wholesale food buyers will be able to quickly identify nearby suppliers of local food, and producers and distributors of local foods to will be able to take advantage of emerging opportunities in both direct-to-consumer and wholesale markets. USDA is currently requesting that managers and owners of local food entities enter their business information in the new directories.
