Farmers view direct-marketing as an alternative way to capture more of the consumer’s dollar, and consumers see it as an opportunity to get fresh, high quality foods at low cost.

This fact sheet examines sales through direct markets, advertising, and related issues affecting New Jersey farmer-to-consumer direct-marketing operations.
