Farmers Markets can be a great way for you to live a more ‘green’ lifestyle. However, they can be super intimidating if you have never been to one.

Farmers Markets Benefits:

  • Good for the environment.
  • Increase local produce.
  • Strengthen the community.
  • Find veggies, eggs, meats, fish, clothing, soaps, etc.
  • A lot of markets are open year round with seasonal crops.

Questions to ask farmers:

  • Where is your farm?
  • Do you use pest control or fertilizer? If so, what?
  • What do you feed your animals and how are they raised?
  • In reference to produce, when was this picked?
  • Do you have any favorite recipes?
