Apples on the web: Massachusetts map of farms and markets

The Massachusetts Department of Agriculture counts 369 apple farms in the Bay State.

Many of them, along with hundreds of farm stands and farmers markets, are on an interactive map created by the Department.
Massachusetts farmers markets
Some careful attention to this tool will let you show, for instance,
  • All the farmers markets in Massachusetts
  • All the organic farms
  • All farms and markets within 20 miles
Clicking on each icon shows the address and hours. This is not just a map, it's a sortable database in cartographic form.

Nicely done! Here's hoping the Commonwealth keeps this useful tool up to date.
