Farmer’s 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.
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 when ripe. Most chain stores purchase produce from other states, so the crops are picked early and ripen off the vine in a truck.
Since the produce is not shipped, it does not need to be waxed or treated, giving the produce not only an excellent flavor but making it a healthier choice. Finally, most area farmer’s markets offer organic choices, eliminating pesticides from your diet.
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.
Eat fresh, save money & live longer by frequenting your Mocksville Farmer’s Market. Your family will thank you!
