Farmers Markets

A farmers market is primarily fresh food market, often where farmers from local areas sell their produce directly to the public .Consumers may benefit by purchasing in season quality food produce at affordable prices.  Supporting farmers markets strengthens local economy as profits are staying in community, as well as  reduces environment impact since the food transport is limited from producer to consumers.
