Loyal customers help South Dakota farmers market


An economic boom of sorts has helped farmers markets top $1 million in sales during 2013. South Dakota had success last summer when they generated $1.3 million in sales to be exact.

Market vendors usually open in early May, with most customers frequenting the stands in July. Of the customers who did shop a farmers market, 63 percent of them came back two to four times a month, and half of them spent $10 to $20 on each trip. Half bought fruit and vegetables, 21 percent purchased baked goods, and 16 percent purchased processed foods.

Agriculture is the state's number one industry employing around 122,000 people.
