Do you shop at a farmer's market?
If you shop at a farmer's market, why do you? Is it convienent? Cheaper? Are you supporting local farmers?
Yes, I shop at my local farmers market. I like the fact that the food is organic and fresher.
it isn't always cheaper but I like the fact that I'm supporting farmers that are in the community.
Yes I do and it is right on that Farm. I had to change my diet so was looking for a good place to get fresh fruits and vergetable. The one that is near us has home-made pies, cakes and breads. They alsohave local honey and other things there. It really is a great place. I think I will make a hub about it! Thanks for the inspiration for that!
I haven't thus far but that's soon about to change as I've discovered one fairly local to me.
Having seen the supermarket monopolies taking over, I'm glad to help out in this way to ensure the farmers get a better deal because they no longer have to go through intermediaries which cut into their profits.
Also, because the food doesn't have to travel as far it tends to mean it's fresher as well so it's a win-win situation for both the vendors and buyers.
YES. We just went yesterday morning. There is a local farmers market where I live every Saturday morning. Love the fresh food as well as seeing the local artists selling their wares.
I am so glad to hear all of the support for local farmers! Keep it up. By shopping at one, we are knowing EXACTLY where our foods come from and are getting foods that are in season. What could be healthier?
I just went shopping at the local farmers market yesterday. I like it because the fruits and vegetables are fresher and I like to support our local farmers. Prices are really good also.
I shop at our local market which buys from the local farmers and yes, the produce is much cheaper and fresher than at the regular grocery stores...that reminds me, I need to check out when my favorite apple is available at a local farm!

Support local farmers even if it means paying higher prices?Personally, money is my concern, and although I'd like to support local companies, I have bills to pay as well. So I'd find the cheapest. And if it means my local big box grocery store, I'll go there.

I am curious where you get your food from.. Do you shop traditional grocery stores or are health food/co-ops the store for you? Do you grow gardens of produce? Do you can or freeze much if you do garden? Do you shop farmers markets rather than grow your own? Where do you get meats from?...

How can I make sure that I am buying local food?We are supposed to buy local food to strenghten our local economy, reduce climate change impacts, put our taxes to a good use, etc. But how can I make sure the products I am buying are really local?
