4 Reasons to Visit a Local Farmers Market
#1 Enjoy Seasonal Items
Food that you purchase at the Farmers Market is always seasonal and fresh. Unlike the fruits and vegetables, you find at the grocery store, you'll only find vegetables and fruits that are in season! This makes your produce taste more flavorful.
#2 Support Family Farmers
Local family farms need a lot of support due to the increase in large farming corporations. Buying directly from a farmer can help boost small family farms' revenue and give them a higher return on all the hard work they do.
#3 Connect With the Community
Attending a farmers market is a great way to connect with community members. Meet new friends, learn where your food comes from, and enjoy shopping outdoors instead of inside the grocery store. Attending a farmers market is an enjoyable experience and takes the "chore" out of shopping.
#4 Enjoy Variety
You'll often find produce, meats, and handmade items that you wouldn't find at your grocery store. Find non-GMO produce as well as a variety of other items! From grass-fed meats, fresh eggs, purple carrots, heirloom tomatoes, and more!
