Visit your Local Farmers Market

June 30, 2012

Keep Healthy and Support your Local Farmer and Visit your Local Farmers Market.

By Joan McDaniel    June 30, 2012

Buy the best local produce from your local farmer by going to your local farmers market.

The food tastes better because it is fresh and just picked. Your local farmers market present a colorful display of eye-catching colors of freshness.  The food is GMO-free, it comes from family farms not the factory. The number of, small farms are decreasing fast. Help build your community and keep the rural farmland.

“Local food is about the future. By supporting local farmers today, you can help ensure that there will be farms in your community tomorrow, so that future generations will have access to nourishing, flavorful, and abundant food.”

Farmers Markets and Local Food Marketing

http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/farmersmarkets Farmers Markets  
Farmers markets are an integral part of the urban/farm linkage and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farm. Farmers markets allow consumers to have access to locally grown, farm fresh produce, enables farmers the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their customers, and cultivate consumer loyalty with the farmers who grows the produce. Direct marketing of farm products through farmers markets continues to be an important sales outlet for agricultural producers nationwide. As of mid-2011, there were 7,175 farmers markets operating throughout the U.S. This is a 17 percent increase from 2010.
