Buy locally grown produce & enjoy each season’s bounty at its best.

    Eating locally saves packaging and energy required to ship food around the country.
  3. Shop organic for global health.
    Farmer’s markets attract organic growers, and buying organic supports good land stewardship.
  4. Become part of your community.
    Farmers’ markets are social venues where you bump into friends and meet local farmers face to face.
  5. Support local farmers and your local economy.
    In an era when sustainable farmers struggle to survive, farmers’ market profits help keep small farms alive.
