There are many good reasons to support Farmer's markets. They are a great way to connect with your local community every Saturday morning. Eating local is also better for the environment, as it saves on fuel cost of getting the produce to you. You're also more likely to find all the foods fresher and healthier--but the best part is, you know where it came from and how it was grown.
