With June quickly approaching, the majority of farmers markets are open or will be open this weekend throughout the US. Heading to one soon? Snap photos and comment here, tweet @ICBA or post on our Facebook page with all of the great things you are seeing in your communities! We’d love to hear about your local community banks in action.
Check out our previous stories to get ideas on what community banks around the country are already doing: ChoiceOne Bank Supports Sparta Farmers Market, Grand Rapids State Bank Creates First-of-its-kind Partnership With Local Farmers Market, Bank of Salem Goes Local with Farmers Market.
Tell us about your community’s farmers market! Are you a community bank who sponsors a market in your town? Let us know! We’re always encouraging people to bank local, dine local and shop local.
Each Friday this May, be on the lookout for Go Local’s Friday Farmers Market posts. We’re highlighting the great works community banks from across the country do with their local markets.
