    We support farmers markets and locally grown and produced food. Access to healthy food helps make healthy people in healthy communities. Many local items are available at farmers markets:

    • Fruit.
    • Vegetables.
    • Cheese.
    • Meat and fish.

    We educate, inspect, and permit food workers to ensure food is safe and prevent foodborne illness.
