Learn more about how a Farmer’s Market can help you save money!
- Buy food from folks who know good quality food. Being able to talk to the farmer who is responsible for growing your spinach and feeding the chickens who lay your delicious, brown, organic eggs is special. You can ask them any questions about what the animals are fed and what the crops are sprayed with and why. Cultivating this relationship makes you feel more connected to the environment and confident that your food is raised with good energy, love, and intention.
- Local food tastes better. Local food travels less than 500 miles from the farm to your plate. As soon as fruits and vegetables are picked, their nutritional value decreases by the minute. So the less time it’s on a road trip, the fresher it is, and the more delicious it tastes. Often times, food sold at Farmer’s Markets is picked a few days prior. You have to taste it to know what I mean!
- Farmer’s Markets save you money. Not only does the food taste better, but it costs less. There is no middleman who has to distribute the produce to a super market, which keeps the costs down. You’re getting it straight from the source. Granted some Farmer Markets keep their prices competitive with the local grocery stores but you still can’t beat that fact that the food you purchased was just picked that day!!
- Try something new. In addition to the farmer’s you’ll see food artisan vendors that sell home made jams, unique flavored vinegars, local bread, and rare spices. To stay healthy, you actually need a variety of veggies, fruit, and grains so all your antioxidants are covered.
- The produce is picked at it’s peak of freshness.Kale, apples, and honey found at Farmer’s Markets is in season. What that means is that it’s at it’s nutritional peak, which means it tastes better and has higher nutritional value.
