CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Business Council says those little farmers markets in the state have a big impact on the economy.

Data compiled by the council’s Agribusiness Division says the markets contributed more than $2.2 million to the state’s economy in 2012.

There were direct sales of about $1.7 million, which generated secondary sales of more than $527,000. The study found that the markets supported the equivalent of about 20 jobs with income totally nearly $525,000.

Kim Porter, of the Business Council, says there will be at least 46 markets around Wyoming this season, which runs from about June to October in most places. However, a few farmers markets operate in the winter.
