We support all local area businesses, especially our Farmers Market. It moved back to our community just last year and we are delighted to have them here. Wonderful fresh produce, bread, nuts, great repeat sellers ... win, win for the community and for "our" growers.

I've shopped at farmers markets in Long Beach since 1991. It makes a huge difference to know the people who grown my food. I can ask them whether they spray pesticides or when cherry season is ending. I feel like I buy my food the way billions of others around the world do -- by supporting the people who grow it.

Helps us to 'eat local'; helps us to eat 'real' food; helps small farmers make a living; gives us a happy, upbeat community center; demonstrates in a small way how we can return to sustainable commerce and get away from Big Box Commerce.

convenient, I can literally roll out of bed and over to the farmers market. What I like is that I get the chance to cook fresh on Thursdays, which used to be a almost leftover day. Reminds me of when I was growing up, my mother always shopped Thursdays. Wow the peach seson is coming up!

bread bread and did i say bread??? cranberry walnut to be exact but only if i'm there early enough to get it. seriously, the fruits and vegies are ripe enough to eat right there. i don't like buying fruit in regular stores cause it's never ready to eat and it gets rotten before it gets ripe. i like sampling different fruits also, can't do that in a grocery store! i love chewey corn on the cob with lots of good stuff drizzled over it too, can't walk around a grocery store eating that! love love love talking to people, no one talks in a grocery store until you are in the check out line then it's always gloomy talk about the prices of food there. oh, no temptation to buy stuff i really don't need. i like getting my books at special times, not as an afterthought before i leave the store. farmers markets just plain smell good also, no rotten fish smell, no rotte food smells. i just love shopping like that, need to go back to shopping every day, i'd cook more. count me in as a lover of long beach uptown farmers market!!!!
