It keeps agriciulture going in my state, and it seems we lose more agriculture all the time because it can be cost prohibitive. I do not want to loose the ability to get fresh locally grown produce. They provide a variety of veggies at reasonable prices and they are great people to buy from. The are very knowledgable about their prodcut and friendly too. If they do not have what you want they will see if they can get it from another grower. It's a pleasant experience douing business at the farmaers market.
