  Local Farmers MarketsThis week’s goal: Support local farmers markets

 

This week, find a farmer’s market in your local neighborhood.  Farmers’ markets exist throughout the world. The size and type can vary, from a giant street fair to a small gathering of local farmers. But no matter which you choose, you’ll be glad you did.

What is the benefit?  Besides supporting small business (which is awesome!), supporting your local farmer’s market will help your local area thrive. Businesses in your area will do better, giving a boost to your local economy. Additionally, you help yourself by eating local. The land around you will grow things that are healthy for your body, so indulge in local (and organic) when possible.

You’ll enjoy a variety of foods at your market. Most will have local fresh produce, like fruits and vegetables.  Some may have organic fruits and veggies, which is always a plus. You may find pastries, sauces, juices, candies, and a variety of other wonderful treats. No matter whether it’s big or small, your local farmer’s market will be an adventure. You might even switch from the grocery store to the farmer’s market on a permanent basis!
