It’s that time of the year – FARMERS MARKETS are open and ready for business!!
Your local farmers market is bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables that taste out of this world. They are selling produce that was just picked with even more nutrients versus the produce bought at the grocery store. That produce often times was picked too early lacking those important nutrients and sat on a truck for who knows how long before it made it to your grocery store. There is nothing like fresh fruit and veggies from a farmers market. I encourage you to buy from a local farmers market when you can. Enjoy all the wonderful tastes of summer.
Another great reason to buy from your local farmers market is that most of the farmers who participate in farmers markets use organic methods of growing, so you can feel good about buying even healthier produce that is chemical free.
Shopping at a farmers market is very affordable. Think about all the “hands” the produce in your grocery store has touched. All those businesses are getting a cut, so naturally, grocery stores have to increase the price, significantly. Shopping at a farmers market, there are no middlemen, which means you get the best price for the best produce. Who doesn’t like the sound of that??
There are numerous reasons to shop at a farmers market, so whatever your reason, get out and shop this summer. When you buy at a local farmers market you are supporting those local farms, which in turn strengthens your local economy and is good for our planet. A win-win for everyone!
