Why shop at your local Farmers Market?
There are so many benefits to shopping at your local farmers market for summer produce. Below are some of my top reasons for shopping at your local farmers market.
- Environmentally friendly – Shopping locally eliminates a large amount of waste that comes with the packaging and shipping of food. When you shop locally you reduce the use of this wasteful packaging.
- Easy access to organic foods – Many farmers and vendors that sell at local farmers markets use organic growing methods. Organic produce is not easily accessible at all local grocery stores, on top of the increased pricing you normally would find. Shopping at your local farmers market helps bridge that gap.
- Support local farmers – Farmers are an integral part of your community and overall environment; I always try to support my local farmers when I can.
