Shopping at your local farmers market does far more than show support for your community. It saves you money, and improves your health. When it comes to picking your fruits and vegetables, timing is absolutely everything, and you lose that value when you shop at big name grocery chains.
Farm to table means you're getting your food directly from the source. You skip the unknown transportation processes that may or may not have left your food packed with chemicals or other contaminants. Your food is delivered to you straight from the ground, in it’s best and optimal condition.
The journey from the farm to the grocery store can take anywhere from days to weeks. Because of the extended time frame, fruits and vegetable are often harvested before they are ready to be picked, so that they don’t rot before they reach the grocery stores. However picking plant foods before they’re ready stops they’re ripening process and changes the nutritional value of the food. Meaning you’re getting less healthy, less nutritious foods (even if you stick it in a brown paper bag to help it ripen faster.)
When you shop at your local farmers market, you know exactly where your food is coming from, and it’s been harvested at the right time to offer you optimal health benefits from your food. Farmers markets are also cheaper than your average grocery store. By shopping at your local market you spare yourself the health disadvantages, and you save money.
