Backroad Journeys: Jonesborough Farmers Market

Our latest radio show on Backroad Journey’s features the Jonesborough Farmers Market, a member of the Appalachian Farmer’s Market Association, in Jonesborough, Tennessee. It is a producer-only market where farmers sell directly to consumers, through both the farmers market and their year round farm store. The Market works to support local farmers, build community, and increase access to fresh, healthy locally grown food through education and outreach. It’s a community-run non-profit organization that has created a community farm to table dinner that stretches down Main Street and a new farmer program called the Field School. The Field School works to share knowledge, expertise and create mentorships between established farmers and new farmers. This episode is full of good ideas for sustaining and growing a year round farmers market.
