Bexley Farmers' Market: May 24th
Need a reason to shop the Bexley Farmers' Market? How about five of them...
Know the origin of your food. The products you buy at the Bexley Farmers' Market travel less than 75 miles to arrive at market. Compare that to the national average of 1,500 miles for products sold in the grocery store.
Try something new. The Bexley Farmers' Market represents more than 12 different product categories including dog food, fresh flowers, and artisan breads to name a few.
Support locally owned businesses. The Bexley Farmers' Market supports more than 18 vendors in business, employing more than 25 people each week.
Get to know your producer. You can ask questions and learn about the products you buy. How was the animal raised? What did the animal eat? When were the strawberries picked? What kind of flour is in the bread? (And chances are, you're asking the farmer or producer themselves.)
Fresh food is better for you. Fresh fruits and vegetables start to lose vitamins and nutrients as soon as they are harvested. Because most of the items you buy at the farmers' market are harvested hours before market, they have more of what we need most.
