Access to the freshest, tastiest vegetables around

Shopping at your local farmers market gives you access to fruits and vegetables that were often picked that morning, at the peak of freshness.  It's hard to find produce that delicious almost anywhere else!

Supports your local farmers and local economy

When you buy something at the farmers market, that money goes straight to the farmer that grew it, who lives nearby.  This is a great, easy way to show support for your city or town.

Fun experience for the whole family

In addition to getting to see the wide variety of fruits and vegetables, farmers markets often have other events taking place as well, such as kids activities, live music, or cooking demos!
