Farmers' markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by small farmers. From the traditional "mercados" in the Peruvian Andes to the unique street markets in Asia, growers all over the world gather weekly to sell their produce directly to the public. In the last decade they have become a favorite marketing method for many farmers throughout the United States, and a weekly ritual for many shoppers.
Food purchased at a local Farmers Market comes with outstanding freshness, quality, flavor, and variety. You know exactly where your food comes from and how it was grown. Additionally, you support a sustainable regional food system that helps small family farms stay in business; protects land from development, and provides all of us with fresh, local food. Farmers Markets have a wide selection of foods and hand crafted items, including: fruits, vegetables, herbs, meats, cheeses, milk, jams and jellies, wines and sauces, breads, seafood, and plants and flowers.
