ASAN DIRECTORY OF LOCAL FARMS / MARKETS - COVID-19
3
Now is a CRITICAL time for us to step up our support for local farmers (and all locally owned businesses!), who bring so much value to our communities and our ecosystem. The need for deeply rooted community relationships has never been so clear as it is now. Help farmers stay in business! In doing so you might just discover many other ways in which eating local can work wonders -- for your health, and for the health of your neighbors, your ecosystem, and your community overall.

WHAT THIS DOCUMENT IS: This spreadsheet is a directory of local farms and farmers markets, where community members can access fresh, local food during COVID-19.
5
HOW TO NAVIGATE IT: Use the tabs at the bottom of the screen to navigate according to region (for farms) or use the farmers market tab to see the open/operating status of markets throughout the state. The counties in each region are highlighted in the map below. This spreadsheet is better viewed on a computer than a phone screen.

DISCLAIMER / REQUEST FOR GRACE: We are compiling this on the fly, in an effort to get it out as soon as possible! There may be mistakes, gaps, delays, etc. Please bear with us! If you have a correction/update, please email info@asanonline.org!

This request for grace also goes for the farmers listed in this guide. These folks are real people, with families and homes and their own set of challenges they're navigating during this difficult time. Please, go easy on them! Have patience, and be flexible and understanding as much as you can.

LIST YOUR FARM: If you are a farmer who sells directly to the public in Alabama, please fill out the form (link in the cell just below, B11) to list your farm in the directory!

PRODUCER-ONLY -- you must grow/raise your own products in order to be listed in this directory. We will not list resellers. We welcome listings for farmers producing meat, eggs, fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, etc. We welcome listings for value-added products **if you produce at least 50% of the ingredients.** Sorry, but at this time we are not including listings for products that don't meet these criteria.
