The mission of the Bisbee Farmers Market is to promote local agriculture, entrepreneurship and a healthy life-style and to build community and quality of life in Bisbee and Cochise County.
The farmers market provides the opportunity for farmers and ranchers to sell their products directly to consumers while providing consumers the opportunity to buy locally raised food directly from its producers. By offering a retail outlet for naturally raised foods, the market has increased local agricultural food production. This leads to greater community food security through the retention of agricultural lands in production and the experts who know how to raise food.
The farmers market promotes the increased consumption of organically raised fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy grass-fed meats and eggs from chickens raised on pasture. The market takes part in the Arizona Farmers Market Nutrition Program wherein low-income women, infants, children and seniors receive vouchers to buy fruits and vegetables from growers at the market. It also promotes "slow food" or home cooking and offers frequent cooking demonstrations.
The farmers market acts as a spawning ground for new small businesses and a chance for local artists, artisans and musicians to showcase their talent and sell their work. Local businesses provide employment and keep profits in the community.
