Who Benefits from a Farmers' Market?
- Small Farm Operators: Those with less than $250,000 in annual receipts who work and manage their own operations meet this definition (94 percent of all farms).
- Farmers and Consumers: Farmers have direct access to markets to supplement farm income. Consumers have access to locally grown, farm-fresh produce and the opportunity to personally interact with the farmer who grows the produce.
- The Community: Many urban communities where fresh, nutritious foods are scarce gain easy access to food. Farmers' Markets also help to promote nutrition education, wholesome eating habits, and better food preparation, as well as boosting the community's economy.

The Iron Mountain Main Street Program
This is done through the Main Street Four-Point Approach of Organization, Design, Promotions, and Economic Restructuring. Each of the four points has a subsequent committee of concerned members of the community. Through community participation and financial contribution, the four committees work on projects aimed at accomplishing their specific goals.
