Make the most of your midweek shopping trip at the farmers market!
Did you know that when you shop at your local farmers market, you have the opportunity to support local, organic, small family farms and help care for the environment? Here are just two ways farmers markets can help reduce our waste! All of the DFM vendors are located within 70 miles of market, with the majority of farms located much closer, which so your food doesn’t have to travel far to make it to your dinner plate. That means your favorite seasonal veggies are super fresh, and reduce the use of petroleum in the transportation process! Also, one of our favorite parts of shopping at market is watching fruits and veggies come straight from the farmers’ bins to their display table. Buying straight from the source often means less plastic packaging! Take a look at the beautiful produce that will be on display today, and stop by to smell the fresh berries, select that perfect bell pepper, and take home some delicious eats. See you there!
