The Feiras Agroecológicas e Solidárias are places where farming families negotiate the agroecological products straight to the consumers. The fairs are marketing strategies that invigorate the field production providing healthy food and ensuring the increase in family income. The fairs strengthen yet the community organization, since they are promoted in a participatory way, being coordinated by the farmers themselves.
