Shopping at the farmers market is a great way to connect with your community, nature, and the changing seasons. Eating seasonal provides you and your family with food that is fresher and more nutritious. By shopping at the farmers market, you can help support local farmers and their families and vastly reduce the distance food travels from the farm to your table.
