The bene ts of shopping farmers’ markets

• Freshness: Many people visit farmers markets because the fruits and vegetables sold at such markets seem to taste more fresh than those sold at chain grocery stores. Such people are not mistaken, as the produce available at farmers markets often comes from local farms, meaning there’s no longdistance shipping necessary. Locally sourced foods need not be frozen en route to the market, meaning foods purchased there tend to taste especially fresh.

• In-season foods: Some grocery stores may sell fruits and vegetables even when those foods are out of season. Farmers markets only sell in-season fruits and vegetables. To grow fruits and vegetables outof-season, farmers may need to rely on chemicals or other unnatural methods. No such means are necessary when farmers stick to growing foods inseason. Farmers markets are more accessible than ever, and the bene ts to shopping such markets are endless.
