The Farmers’ Market has become a major event right through the summer, attracting both locals and visitors to the island. Dozens of local farmers sell fresh produce and many local artists, craftspeople and artisans display their work for sale. If you want to buy local produce or crafts, you won’t have to go far to find what you are looking for on Saturday morning.
I work at our local Farmers’ Market every Saturday and I really enjoy the opportunity to socialize with friends and to buy high quality, locally grown organic produce and herbs.
Do you shop at your local Farmers’ market?
Why Shop at the Farmers’ Market?
The food is at its freshest because it doesn’t have to travel hundreds of miles to get to you. Local producers can select their produce varieties for taste, rather than their ability to travel.
You can help ensure that local farmland will stay in production. You can talk to the people who grow or make your food and they can and will respond to your needs, tastes, and questions.
More than a marketplace, it’s a social gathering where friends and families meet.
