The trend to buy local products is sparking interest all over the United States.  Would you rather have fresh food grown in your local Lake George community, picked in the past day or two?  Or would you rather have food that’s flown or trucked in from Florida, Mexico or Chile?  The choice is simple.  Buying food at a farmers’ market is usually much more flavorful and healthier - not to mention it helps supports the local economy.
 

One of the main reasons people buy from a farmers’ markets is because the food just tastes better!  Food that is picked in the past day or two is crisper, with bolder flavor.  Food at farmers’ markets are in their peak season, and don’t need to be processed for longer shelf time.  Not to mention that food consumed quickly after it’s harvested retains more nutrients.   It’s also exciting to try new foods when you visit a farmers’ market—did I mention larger variety?  You can find unique, local, garden varieties of fruits and vegetables, like Celebrity, Juliette and Mountain Fresh tomatoes. 
 
When food is grown in your own backyard, it greatly reduces your carbon footprint.  The term “food miles” is the distance food travels from where it is grown to where it is ultimately purchased or consumed.  The average distance produce travels in the United States is 1,500 food miles.  Think of all the steps it takes to get food from Point A to Point B. Refrigeration, packaging, storage, transportation all require energy use.  Buying local at a nearby farmers’ market requires significantly less energy. 
 
Knowing where your food comes from directly connects you with the farmer who put food on your table—creating a sense of community. When you visit a farmers’ market, you develop a relationship with your favorite vendor’s who provide you with the delicious food that you love.  
Get to know your food and your neighbors by supporting your local farmers’ market.
