The Importance of Supporting Your Local Farmers Market This Season
Farmers Market season is finally upon us. After a long winter and a few extra weeks of anxiously waiting for the market to safely open, I am excited that my favorite time of year is finally here. I can’t help but love being connected to my local community and my local farmers. Especially in such a troubling time. We all need a place that feels sane again. Sundays at the farmers market is a great way to navigate back to something normal again.
Farmer’s Markets also provide the best opportunity to support a number of local businesses that have been hurting during this troubling time. Going to your local farmers market gives your community the best chance to rise above this financial crisis. If we all started to prioritize supporting local businesses over large corporations then we might just get through this. Plus by supporting your favorite farmer you empower them to give back even more to the people in your community that may be experiencing a financial setback. Let’s make sure not a single one of our neighbors goes hungry by sticking together and helping each other wherever we can.
