FRESHNESS - At the farmers market you will be purchasing food that is fresh and recently picked, sometimes even that day.
NUTRITION – Produce that is allowed to fully ripen before being picked and purchased within a short time from harvest is much more nutrient rich.
COMMUNITY - Farmers support local businesses and create jobs in our community. Supporting farmers helps our local economy to thrive.
ENVIRONMENTAL – Locally grown produce uses less fuel to transport, less packaging, less wasted on the way to market, and can be grown with fewer harmful chemicals.
COMPASSION - Donations allow us to offer matching SNAP funds. See the market manager for details on how to make your SNAP benefits go twice as far.
