Summertime is here and for many communities that means that farmer’s markets are in
full force! Farmer’s markets typically are open one day per week and provide seasonal locally grown produce. Depending on the size of the market, some will also sell meats, seafood, eggs, dairy, and grains, all of which are locally-sourced. Shopping at farmer’s markets and buying locally is good for our health, good for our community of farmers, and for the environment. It is a win-win situation for all involved. Don’t hesitate- visit your local farmer’s market today! For a list of the farmer’s markets closest to you, visit Local Harvest. Read below for more reasons to shop at your local farmer’s market.
