Single purpose API
This week is national farmer's market week, with over 8,100 markets across the country. The farmer's market directory API that gives access to the data is one of five USDA APIs in our directory. Two of the other 4 are no longer available: ERS/USDA Per Capita Food Availability Data API and USDA Animal Identification Management System API. However, the USDA Economic Research Service API, and the USDA Soil Data Access API are still live. We last covered the farmer's market directory API on its released mid-May.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Cloudera Developer Kit. This kit will help developers build applications in Hadoop environments by providing them with API tools and reducing the barriers to entry. Meaning the rather expensive environment will be more open due to efficiency tips and tools provided by the CDK. To learn more about what exactly the Cloudera developer kit does, visit the Cloudera site as well as the Cloudera API blog post.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has just launched the brand new USDA Farmers Market Directory API providing developers programmatic access to the USDA National Farmers Market Directory database. According to the USDA website, the National Farmers Market Directory has over 7,800 farmers market listings for all 50 states and provides consumers farmers market information such as market locations, directions, operating times, product offerings, and accepted forms of payment.
