Farmers’ markets consist of individual vendors, mostly farmers, who set up booths, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, to sell produce, meat products, fruits and sometimes prepared foods and beverages. Farmers markets add value to communities.
Here are the 4 top benefits of Farmer’s Markets for consumers:
1. They provide direct contact and feedback between customers and producers, so you can be sure how your vegetables are grown and meat produced.
2. They help to improve diet and nutrition by providing access to fresh food.
3. They play an important role in educating the consumer as to the production and origin of their food.
4. They can be a source of information and inspiration on how to cook and prepare fresh ingredients.
Take the time to check out your local farmers market and reap all the benefits.
