The economic benefits of farmers markets, long discussed anecdotally, have been the subject of numerous studies. The following are highlights from some of these studies on the direct and indirect economic impacts of public markets and farmers markets:
• In a 2002 survey, customers from a variety of indoor and open-air markets around the country, discovered that 60% of market shoppers also visited nearby stores on the same day; of those, 60% said that they visited those additional stores only on days that they visit the market.
• A 2006 study on farmers markets in the Canadian province of Ontario confirms these findings, showing that an overwhelming majority of farmers market customers also patronize at least one other nearby store on their way to or from the market, with many visiting two or more stores in the same trip.
