Benefits to Shopping Farmer’s Markets

  • Better taste and nutrition: Products are grown locally and picked at the peak of the season, making nutrients more abundant.
  • Meet your farmers: The same people who grow the food sell their products and have a wealth of knowledge to share.
  • Support local business: When you shop at local farmers markets, you’re keeping money in your own community going directly to the farmer.
