Saying yes to fresh local produce is as simple as walking through your local farmers market. Farmers markets are just plain fun for the whole family. You have the opportunity to meet your local community and feel connected to the world around you, increasing health for body, mind and spirit. By shopping at the local farmers market, you can eat seasonally, fresh, ripe produce. This is another great way to increase your overall health. Buying from your local farmer allows you to support local agriculture. This means that the food you are eating comes from nearby. You are also eating food in your own environment, where it has perfectly-created nutrients for your specific climate and region.
