Virginia Is For Lovers... Of Farmers' Markets

Virginia is seeing an explosion of farmers' markets.

The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says the state has more than 240 farmers' markets statewide, a 180 percent increase since 2006.

The department notes a Cooperative Extension survey found that if every household in the state spent $10 a week on locally grown products, consumers would be investing $1.65 billion back into the economy.
