Farmers’ markets sell all kinds of items, from small-batch, artisan offerings to homegrown fruits and vegetables to freshly baked goods. There are nearly 9,000 farmers’ markets registered in the USDA Farmers’ Market directory. While peak harvest season is typically peak market season, many farmers’ markets are open year-round.

Vendors can use promotional products to stay top of mind — especially during National Farmers’ Market Week that runs August 7-13. We’ve handpicked a few promotional products that work for the occasion. Keep reading this issue of Promotional Consultant Today for some ideas.
