Have You Hugged Your Farmer Today?

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has declared August 7th-13th to be National Farmers’ Market Week for 2011. The occasion is designed “to further awareness of farmers markets and the contributions farmers make to daily life in America” by improving the health of their communities. Read the official proclamation below and then head out to a market near you this week to show your support by picking up some local veggies “in their freshest possible state.” Tell them Vilsack sent you.
