August 12, 2011 Two things came together and made a splash: data and love for good food! Last year the USDA launched a new mapping feature for their National Farmers Market Directory and access to raw data for “app designers and researchers to develop even more sophisticated or fine-tuned uses of the USDA Farmers Market Directory.” The result has been a multitude of sites which have created new ways to find locally grown food wherever you are.

Real Time Farms
Farmers Market API
Be sure and check out this new documentary, “Farmers Markets: Love at First Bite”. It was produced by the folks over at Only at Farmers’ Markets.
