Why support the Farmer's Market?

There are many reasons supporting a local Farmer's Market is important to a community. Supporting local farmers is probably one of the first things that come to people's minds when thinking of the Farmer's Market. While local farmers do want and need the support of the community, Farmer's Markets help the local economy thrive as well. When purchasing produce from the supermarket, that tomato you are buying may have come from as far away as Mexico. That "fresh" produce they are marketing may have been transported by truck across multiple states, for multiple days, and literally on its last leg before going bad, not to mention that the taste is usually very lackluster.

By buying produce from the Farmer's Market, you are purchasing a product that only traveled mere miles before reaching its destination and ultimately into your hands. You will be buying truly fresh produce and supporting the local farmers while you are at it.

However, Farmer's Markets are not only offering produce, there are usually a variety of other goods that are available for purchase and that are also locally produced. Artists will present their various works from painting, woodworking, glasswork, ceramics, and much more. Most markets will offer baked goods such as bread, cakes, and muffins.
