5 Great Buys at a Farmers Market!

One of the best things about shopping at a farmers market is the high quality of produce and goods being sold. When you buy from a farmers market you can rest easy about it's freshness, it's organic production and that it was grown with environmental mindfulness. While you can buy much of your produce from the grocery store, here are the top 7 best things to buy from your local farmers market.
  1. TOMATOES-Locally grown organic tomatoes are produced with no pesticides or fungicides like many of those shipped into the grocery store. You can also find several varieties that aren't carried in stores.
  2. CARROTS-You'll only find orange carrots at the grocery store. If you buy carrots from a farmers market you'll see colors ranging from white to purple. Purple carrots have a higher antioxidant content.
  3. BERRIES-When you buy berries from a local farmers market, you're not only getting tastier berries but you're also helping the environment. Due to the short shelf life of berries, they are often shipped by plane for distribution which is the most fossil fuel intensive form of food shipment.
  4. ONIONS-When you buy onions from a farmers market you're encouraging that farmer to grow more onions. In recent years the importing of onions has reduced the price that local farmers can get for their crops & as a result they grow less.
  5. GRASS FED MEAT & DAIRY-Animals raised completely on grass produce 8% less greenhouse gas emissions & 30% less ammonia levels than corn fed animals.
