WPA Farmers' Market
Above: The description for this 1938 photo reads, "A Farmer's Market built by the WPA. This market is used by farmers in the community to distribute their salable crops. The market is open for business as market-goers load up their truck." Photo taken in Valdosta, Georgia, and provided courtesy of the National Archives and the New Deal Network.

The WPA built many Farm-to-Market roads across the country, so farmers could get their goods to consumers, and so consumers could have access to more nutritious food.
