Why shop at farmers markets?
Why shop at farmers markets? One good reason is the produce is locally grown. It’s also picked when ripe instead of being picked prematurely which allows it to reach it’s full potential in flavor and nutritional value. So if you think about your fruit in this way, it’s actually cheaper to buy at the farmers market because you don’t need to buy as much food to get your daily vittles! The other important reason to shop at the farmers’ market is because the food is in season. That’s right, believe it or not plants grow seasonally and most of our produce that is available year round should actually only be around for a few months of the year. Take asparagus for instance. This delicate vegetable should only be available in early spring but is found all year round in grocery stores. If you go to the farmers’ market you will never find asparagus there other than in spring and more importantly, you will never find asparagus as tasty and fresh as at these markets. All things considered, the advantages of shopping at the farmers’ market are numerous. The food is more nutritious, fresher and most importantly – you’ll never find tastier fruits and veggies. Here is a list of fruits and veggies that you’ll find at your local farmers’ market this fall;
