Farmers’ markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by small farmers.
Shopping at a farmers’ market is a great way to meet local farmers and food producers, and get fresh, flavourful produce.
People argue farmers’ markets allow farmers to pick produce at the peak of flavor, preserve the nutritional content of fresh produce, and since locally grown produce does not travel as far to get to your table, the difference in mileage saves fossil fuels.
Farmers’ markets often feature produce grown naturally or organically, meats that are raised humanely on pasture, handmade farmstead cheeses, eggs and poultry from free-range fowl, as well as heirloom produce and heritage breeds of meat and fowl.
Meet the farmers, fishermen, growers and bakers who all share a passion for home grown products…
