"Janine MacLachlan provides vivid portraits of the farmers and producers who make each market unique and representative of local foods. This book will be much enjoyed by farmers' markets regulars, foodies who love to read about good locally produced food (it is a heroic tale), cookery book lovers, and a wide audience interested in midwestern culture."--Bruce Kraig, president, Culinary Historians of Chicago, and Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance
"What an inspiring read! Illustrating the creativity, diversity, and conscientiousness of Midwestern market farming and food culture, Farmers' Markets of the Heartland provides a fresh take on a vital piece of American identity."--David Rand, Board of Directors, National Farmers Market Coalition, and Partner at Quarter Circle Seven Ranch in Marengo, Illinois
"This book should inspire readers to check out the market nearest them and perhaps to visit other markets while traveling through the Midwest."--Indiana Magazine of History
"Fans of Midwestern farms and farmers markets are in for a literary treat. . . . Filled with tempting photographs and select recipes, the book focuses on folks as much as food."--Chicago Tribune
