July 12th, 2010 just launched a widget we know you’ll love. The new Farmers’ Market Locator, powered by Google Maps, helps you find the freshest produce possible while supporting your local farmers. Never miss a good farmers’ market again!

You can find the widget on the right hand side of our site. Just plug in your zip code, click "find it!," then click on the carrots to get maps or contact information and start thinking about what you’ll make with the bundles of greens, heirloom tomatoes, and other farm stand goodies you’ll pick up on the way home.

Phase 2, which is in the works now, will include some interactive features, so please stay tuned. For now, though, be sure Google knows about you! It’s the best way to turn up on one of these maps: Posted: 5:15 pm on July 14th

KBeth writes: Great Widget! I'm all in favor of giving people more ways to find out about the fantastic farmers' markets in the areas they live.

However, I noticed that the two farmers' markets I manage are not listed in my area. What source did you use to find the markets that are listed, and how can the missing ones be added?

Thanks! Posted: 10:56 am on July 14th
