Nowadays, shopping at the farmers’ market is the best and most efficient thing. From preparing everyday lunch for the family and dinner later the sundown, nearby farmer’s markets are the best place to shop for needed ingredients. Farmers market, such as Apple Valley farmers market, is where farmers can sell their homegrown livestock and produce directly to customers. Most farmers markets would have booths, stalls, stands, and tables for growers to provide convenience when selling, unlike groceries with vast and permanent buildings.
However, unlike groceries, they do not sell frozen produce that has probably been in transit for days or weeks. And unlike other retail places, farmers markets are places for community where people can connect with people. Other than the benefits that have already been said, there are many benefits a farmers’ market can offer. Here are good reasons to shop at a farmers’ market.
Non-GMO, organic, and natural products
In these modern days, factory farming on a large scale has become the norm due to the fast-paced world that humans now live in. These industrial farms practice monoculture, where a type of fruit or vegetable is grown in a large area of land. While this ensures groceries have a large volume of produce, this intensive farming zaps all the soil’s nutrients, making the plants more vulnerable to diseases and pests. To avoid it from happening, various types of chemicals and pesticides are used, which is unhealthy for humans who consume the produce. On the other hand, sellers from apple valley market use only organic and natural ways to grow produce. Healthier for the soil, the plants, and for us humans.
Supports local farmer
As mentioned earlier, factory farming is taking over the world at a fast rate. Forcing small farms to stop production and eventually close. But every time people go and shop at farmers market, they support small farm growers who can’t afford to compete with farm factories.
Bang for the buck
Get more bang for your buck when shopping at farmers market. All the products sold are expected to be fresh and organic and cheaper than their grocery counterparts since they come straight from the farmers. What better way to save more money than staying healthy?
