Jean-Martin Fortier’s The Market Gardener is the book to have at your hand, on the table while you eat lunch, on your bedside table for the few minutes before sleep. This is a direct, clear, guide for day-to-day operations of your small farm. - Ruben Anderson, smallanddeliciouslife.com
"JM Fortier's 'The Market Gardener' is my go to encyclopedia for diversified small scale agriculture. I consider him one of the most accessible and knowledgable experts in the field and have implemented many ideas from his book into my own farm." - Jordan Collin, Aotearoa Market Garden, New Zealand
"Jean-Martin Fortier picks up right where Eliot Coleman has left us, applying many of his core principles, but doing it in such a brilliant way as to provide beginning farmers a solid framework of the information they need to start up and become successful small-scale organic growers themselves."- Adam Lemieux, Product Manager of Tools & Supplies, Johnny's Selected Seeds
