Farmers’ Market Benefits

 
 
Farm markets provide an opportunity for the community to interact directly with the local producers of fruits, vegetables and herbs; this interaction not only creates a connection but helps buyers understand where their food comes from.  In many cases, pop-up farm markets provide buyers the opportunity to shop local fresh produce right in their own community.
