Top Reasons to Shop at a Farmers Market

Freshly picked, in season produce is at its peak in flavor and nutrition.
Food tastes better, produce ripens in the field instead of in cold storage containers.

Support your local farmers and economy.
You can help new and smaller farmers be successful and save farmland in your area.

Fresh fruit and vegetables are full of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

It's a great way to get your kids involved.
Let them pick out something new to try, then they can help prepare a meal and add variety to your diet by buying and trying something in season.

Supporting your local farmers market strengthens your community.

Meet your local farmers, learn about foods grown in your area and catch up with friends and neighbors while stocking up with local goods.
