Local Farmers’ Markets Offer Fresher Food Options

Woman shopping at a farmers marketWhy locally grown food is better for your health

Eating locally grown foods is better for your health and your taste buds. Farmers’ markets are great places to try new foods and purchase fresh produce, directly from the grower. These markets provide quality food that has often been picked within 24 hours of your purchase, therefore still retaining most of its flavor and nutrients. These local markets have a greater variety of seasonal produce and you will have an opportunity to try new foods. And, when you buy locally grown foods, you support your region’s economy and help maintain the farmland in your community. Here is a list of local farmers’ markets that you can visit this summer.
