Fresh Fruit

June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month

This month is the perfect time to start talking about farmers markets. Buying from your local farmer is not just about buying fresh, it’s about how this one small action can significantly impact your entire community.

Benefits of Shopping at Your Local Farmers Market

Buying from local producers means:

  • You Support Your Local Economy. When you support your local farmer, your money stays local and goes to work to improve the environment for you, your family, and future generations.

  • You Eat Fresh. Eating locally grown produce ensures that you are getting the freshest most naturally grown produce available on the market.

  • Your Food Tastes Better. Food that does not have to travel thousands of miles or be artificially ripened is bound to taste better.

  • You Will Have Better Variety. Local farmers markets have produce on display that you may not think to buy at the grocery store. If you aren’t sure about what you are buying, the farmer is right there to answer your questions.
