Celebrating Farmers' Markets in the Greater Capital Region
- Category: Local
Celebrate the abundance of fresh, locally grown produce and handmade goods at a farmers market in your community. By purchasing from local farmers, artisans and producers, consumers connect directly with the people who grow and make the food. Farmers markets provide a vital role in their communities by bringing together the folks that grow the food with the people who eat it.
Fresh produce, meats, cheeses and a variety of other products are available at many farmers’ markets throughout the Greater Capital Region. Shopping at farmers markets puts money in the pockets of people in your community rather than the big box stores and grocery chain. Visit your local farmers market to make the connection and keep farmers farming in your community!
