    Buy In Farmers’ Markets for Healthier Foods It benefits the consumer, the grower, and the community if we eat locally grown farmers’ products. Today, more families are choosing to buy from local food producers because their crops are harvested at the peak of their ripeness compared to those crops that are harvested early to accommodate their shipping and distribution schedules to the local retail stores. This in and of itself already makes a big difference when it comes to flavor. And when you eat locally grown food, you know that these foods are being harvested in the right season. Strawberries for instance ripen at a certain time of the year while the rest of the other seasons is their time to outfit themselves to bear fruit at the right season again. You can only get strawberries that are full of flavor and taste better if you get them during their harvest season and if not, then you don’t get that same flavorful taste. From the farm gate to your table, it will only take a short time compared to getting food from faraway places. Therefore you get fresher quality foods with higher nutritional value if you get your food at your local farmers’ market.

    Another benefit of purchasing locally grown food is that you help maintain farmland, green and open space in your community. NO we know that the farmers’ market is the best sour of fresh food. And you can shop for the best foods that are in season. You can get the best flavors from foods in season, and not only that foods in season are produced in abundant too, so you also get a good, low price on it. Another advantage you have is that you will know more about that food, the practices they use to raise and harvest the crops, the fertilizers and pest control that they use, since you know where you food comes from and who grew it. Knowing all these is important to consumers because many times we are misled into thinking that we are eating health foods when actually they are not. Since they want to assure consumers that they sell healthy foods, farmers make sure that they only use organic and natural pest repellents. Those large scale agricultural operations often use mechanized mass sprayers with pesticides. In order to keep them fresh in transit, most locally produced foods don’t have any preservative and chemicals added to it.
