Why We Shop At Farmers Markets!

temp-post-image



We love shopping at farmers markets. You can really get excited about the very fresh foods that you can find at these bustling markets. We love the fact that you can talk directly to the farmer about an unfamiliar product or ask an artisan vendor how their product is produced. Prices are usually lower than your local grocery store. In the event that your product is a couple of dollars more rest assured that its money well spent because you are also supporting the local economy. If we don't support these types of markets we wouldn't have access to the best locally grown and produced foods.


We have included a list of the local farmers markets in our area. What’s your favorite farmers market?
