FarmSales direct-to-consumer reach $10.7 billion in 2020

In 2020, #U.S. farms sold almost $10.7 billion of edible food commodities directly to consumer outlets and intermediary supply chains such as restaurant/grocery stores, regional distributors and local institutions—a nearly $2.8 billion (35%) increase from 2019. From 2019 to 2020, sales at #FarmersMarkets and #Restaurants/grocery stores increased by 11 and 13%, respectively, whereas sales at #FarmStores, #CSAs and other direct-to-consumer #channels increased by 79% and sales to #RegionalDistributors increased by 73%. However, sales to #LocalInstitutions declined by 86% in 2020 relative to 2019, likely because of closures or restricted operations related to the #Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
