Have fun shopping at Davie County farmers markets
Farmers markets provide an opportunity for local farmers to get together in a social setting along with members of the local community.  These gatherings strengthen communities, create a sense of belonging and ownership, and often lead to greater involvement in local issues by those who share a common interest in healthy environments and healthy lifestyles.

One of the reasons to shop at a farmers market is to support the local economy.  Everyone benefits when dollars stay in the local community.  The farmers are supported and can continue to grow their crops, and the money spent stays in the community rather than being shipped elsewhere.  This helps the local economy thrive.

Farmer’s markets in North Carolina are not taxed which saves you money by making the products purchased a greater value. In essence, a person is getting 6.5 percent more product for their money through the elimination of sales tax.

Live Longer Consuming Local Produce from Davie County farmers markets
There are distinct health benefits to eating local, fresh produce.  One of these benefits is that fresh produce is harvested when it is ripe.  The greatest amount of vitamins naturally found in produce is available ONLY when the crop is picked ripened.  Most chain stores purchase produce from other states, and therefore the crops are picked early and ripen off the vine in a truck.  This renders the vitamins much weaker to the consumer.

Another health benefit is that because the produce is not shipped, it does not need to be waxed or treated.  This again gives the produce not only an excellent flavor, but also makes it a healthier choice.  Finally, most area farmers markets offer organic choices, eliminating pesticides from your diet.
