Support your local Farmer’s Market

This Summer spend your Saturday’s shopping sustainably at your local Farmer’s Market! When you shop local you don’t only reap the benefits of farm fresh fruits and veggies, you also support small farmers and producers while reducing your carbon footprint. According to the USDA, large farms ($250,000 and above) account for 85 percent of the market value of agricultural production. Moreover, the number of small commercial farms, as well as their share of sales, has shrunk over time. Despite the continuing shift in production to larger farms, the contribution of small commercial family farms is still considerable1.
