One of the best places to find fresh herbs, meats, and produce is right in your own backyard. With the arrival of April, we also welcome back local farmers markets. There are several products available for you to purchase at your local farmers market. These include fresh meat and produce, as well as herbs and flowers. Here are a couple farmers markets in Fulton County to check out this spring.
Why Buy Local?
From purchasing produce during its peak season to meeting the people growing the food, there are several reasons to buy local. Buying locally grown and raised food benefits both you and the farmers. You benefit because you get fresh herbs, meats, and produce from people in your community. For instance, produce is typically fresher at a farmers market because it is picked closer to the day of the market. For the farmers, selling locally can also yield higher return because they don’t have to ship the food hundreds of miles away.
