Looking Back, Looking Forward: Reflections on Farmers Market Advocacy & Action in Prince George's County, Maryland

By Tess Kerkhof, FEC Communications Intern 

Farmers markets represent a critical food access point for many communities across Prince George’s County. Beyond bringing food from local farms to local tables, farmers markets also support local economies, increase access to fresh and nutritious food in communities with limited grocery store access, and promote sustainable farming practices. Since the Prince George’s County Food Equity Council was founded in 2013, the organization has influenced policies, developed resources, and created infrastructure to promote and expand county farmers markets that help residents grow, sell, and choose healthy and locally produced food. 

Throughout the past few years, members of the Food Equity Council and partners supported the passage of multiple pieces of legislation that support county farmers markets.
