Inspired by the success of established farmers markets in surrounding areas, community organizations and planning departments may consider starting a new farmers market in their area. Before expending limited time, money, and labor, conducting a consumer interest survey is an important step in assessing if a new farmers market is desired and needed in a community. The following example survey was developed to assist in determining consumer interest in a starting a farmers market and may be adapted and utilized by extension professionals, community organizations, planning departments, or other interested individuals in determining new farmers market feasibility.
