We believe farmers’ markets are among the projects that provide access to good food and encourage healthier habits. These markets connect consumers with fresh, and more often than not organic, food that is free of the over-processing that plagues most products found in the average supermarket. Even the ability to purchase free-range eggs is a significant opportunity. Recent studies show that the nutritional value of free-range eggs versus caged eggs was greater. It’s the small things that help make a difference.
Aside from the obvious benefit of access to good food, farmers’ markets can encourage the surrounding residents to get outside and engage in a communal activity. These markets, with successful placement, even have the ability to contribute to local culture by providing an arena for local musicians and artisans. They also affect the surrounding economy by keeping consumer’s dollars local.
It is our belief that a farmers’ market as the potential to do great good for the community in more ways than one.
