Many people do not realize how important supporting the local economy is for the growth and continued development of their community. Farmer's markets have long been a cornerstone of community support systems; therefore, I encourage you to take the time to do a little research into farmer's markets in your own community.
Go to www.localharvest.org or www.ams.usda.gov/farmersmarket
s and search for local farmer's markets in your very own area. Seasonal produce is often more fresh than that of produce sections at the supermarket. Nutrient and mineral contents are often higher in those fruits and veggies raised by farmers; therefore, I suggest buying the best produce from farmer's markets.
Together we can support our communities and show our community we care!
