Tip on Farmer’s Markets

I like to shop at farmer’s markets for fresh, locally grown produce. I was surprised to find out last year, though, that at one place where I shop, over half of their produce (maybe two-thirds) was not locally grown. It was from California. I live in Texas, so that’s definitely not local. I can get produce from California in the grocery stores. When I go to a farmer’s market, I want produce that hasn’t had to be shipped very far so it will be at its freshest. I’ve learned since then to always ask where the produce comes from and which is grown locally.

  1. That’s what I like about our markets here in PA they always put up a sign that says grown locally, but that doesn’t occur everywhere. Have a good day Charla

  2. I always mean to go to the Farmer’s market here in town. I should do that sometime soon!
