  • Taste the difference
    Farmer’s markets offer the freshest food around—usually only hours from the field—so you get top quality, perfectly ripe flavor.
  • Help the environment
    Eating locally saves vast amounts of packaging waste and energy required to ship food around the globe.
  • Shop organic for global health
    Farmer’s markets attract vendors who use organic growing methods, meaning you gain access to food free of synthetic pesticides & buying organic supports good land stewardship.
  • Become part of your community
    Festive and lively, farmer’s markets are social venues where you bump into friends and meet local farmers face to face.
  • Support your local farmers & economy
    In an era when sustainable farmers struggle to survive, farmer’s market profits—which go straight into growers’ pockets—help keep small farms alive.
  • Save money
    Buying from farmers eliminates the cost of the middleman and pricey shipping, so you get more value for your dollar.
  • Learn about food
    Kids and adults alike enjoy exploring firsthand how foods are grown, harvested, and eaten by browsing market stalls and talking to farmers.
  • Boost your nutrition
    Tantalizing produce displayed in farmers’ bins and baskets encourages you to eat more fruits and vegetables, so it’s easy to consume the recommended five servings a day.
  • Treat your senses
    Experiencing the colors, smells, and tastes of a farmer’s market is a sensual experience that connects you to the land.
  • Find new cooking ideas
    Community chefs at the farmer’s market are happy to share recipes for in-season foods.
