National Farmer’s Market Week

This week we celebrate National Farmer’s Market Week. We use this week as a great opportunity to show people how much value these markets bring to their communities.

There are many Benefits of Shopping at Your Local Farmer’s Market and below we have taken the time to outline just 10 of those benefits.

  1. Buying from your local farmer allows you to support local agriculture. It is always a great idea to shop local.

  2. You can find a variety of fresh, organic produce and more often than not they are better tasting and more affordable than in a supermarket.

  3. Your money will be staying in your area, and as an added bonus you will please the farmer that worked so hard to grow that food.

  4. You will have a better opportunity for variety as you will be able to eat the best fruits and veggies for each season. The ones that are juiciest and most ripe.

  5. Foods from your local farmers market are generally much safer.

  6. The food from your local farmers market is fresher. The fact that it was grown locally means that it was most likely just picked the day or days prior to the day you are purchasing it.

  7. There is usually a really nice variety of fruits and veggies at your local farmers market.

  8. There is no doubt that locally-grown foods just always taste BETTER.

  9. It’s Healthy! Eating fresh, locally-grown fruits and veggies is great for your health.

  10. It’s Fun! Farmers markets are just plain fun for the whole family. It can really be a nice outing for you to enjoy with the kids.
