MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin is among the top 10 states in the nation when it comes to numbers of farmers markets.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says its directory of farmers markets includes 295 in Wisconsin. That puts the state at No. 8 in the nation.

California has the most farmers markets with 764.

Nationwide, the number of farmers markets registered with the USDA has grown from about 3,700 a decade ago to nearly 8,300 this year.

The USDA is promoting its directory during National Farmers Market Week, which starts Sunday.
