Food fresh from the farm ... what could taste better?
It's true that farmers markets provide us with fresh, locally grown and raised foods, but they also bring us a strengthened sense of community. While shopping at a farmers market for anything - from delicious organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs, to artisan cheeses and local grains, to organic meats and eggs - we gain respect for farms, farmers, land and water. The connection between the land and the food we eat becomes a cherished relationship. We come to realize that farmers are the only truly indispensable people on Earth.
All of this happens in the company of our neighbors. We meet new people and make new friends. Join the growing. Reap the rewards. Start a farmers market in your town, or simply use the following links to find one in your area:
