Farmers' Markets – A Resurgence of Community
Farmers' markets are important to the concept of sustainable living in communities for many reasons - here are just a few:
energy consumed in transporting food is minimized when we buy locally grown produce, and meats,
farmers'markets are a resource for food grown with minimal or no petroleum-based pesticides,
we have the opportunity to ask the farmer questions about his or her growing practices,
and they provide a forum for interacting with our neighbors.
Look for those farmers who offer local, seasonal, organically or naturally grown products. If the farm market vendors do not advertise this, please ask how and where the products are grown.
