National Farmers Market Week: August 2-8


Next week is National Farmers Market Week and we should all be celebrating!  Summertime is the best time to visit your local farmers market, with all the lovely produce awaiting you there!  Vine-ripened tomatoes, just bursting with sweet deliciousness, peaches, plums, apricots, berries of all sorts, squash of many varieties, and much, much more!

Make a point of getting out there, at least once this next week and show your support of this wonderful community program.  It’s healthier for the consumer (fresher, picked at the peak of ripeness), the planet (less fossil fuel cost to transport), and better for the farmer, through direct sales rather than using a middle man.

For more reasons why farmers markets are so wonderful for our communities, check out this article by Stacy Miller in the Huffington Post.
