Why shop at the farmers market?

There isn’t a better place to find fresh, local and a wide variety of food than at a farmer’s market where you can purchase directly from the grower. The benefits don’t stop there. Shopping at a farmers market is a great way to support small business and community farms. In addition, meeting new friends and neighbors at the farmers' market while shopping and supporting local businesses is just fun!
