Title: 2016 Farmers Markets in New York State
Issue Date: 2017
Description: This point shapefile represents the locations of farmers markets throughout New York State. This data was harvested in November 2017 from PolicyMap, which is a database available from NYU Libraries. Farmers’ market points are taken from the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) through the Farmers’ Market Directory. The Directory is a reporting system where local farmers’ market managers list the locations of their markets and basic details. The data may not include all farmers’ markets. AMS reports geographic coordinates as reported through the Directory. PolicyMap geocoded market addresses whose geographic coordinates fell outside the reported county and was able to display 99% of the provided locations on a map. The Farmers’ Market Directory is updated on a rolling basis. AMS data is updated on PolicyMap annually. Users may want to consult the USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service for a more recent (but not geocoded) listing of market locations at https://www.ams.usda.gov/local-food-directories/farmersmarkets/. This dataset contains the name, the address, website season date, and season hours of each farmers' market.
