Bexley Farmers' Market: August 30th

“In spite of food fads, fitness programs, and health concerns, we must never lose sight of a beautifully conceived meal.”

Julia Child

Why should I shop at a farmers market when my supermarket sells organic, and sometimes even local food?

While some food retailers do carry local and organic products, not all of them can carry a variety of local foods, or ensure a fair price to the farmer. Shopping at a farmers market is a wholly unique experience that benefits farmers and producers directly (they go home with a greater share of the retail price than they would by selling wholesale, where the margins are, well, just that– marginal), offering you more unique products, more heirloom varieties, and more opportunities to build relationships and learn about healthy eating. Farmers markets are a community experience, where you can meet your neighbors, friends, and farmers, and where more of your dollar will stay in the community.
