Fresh local produce at the Farmers' Market is the next best thing to my own garden--picked for market day--veggies, fruit & flowers every week--what a treat!

Fresh affordable local produce is what I look for and what I recieve from my local Farmers Market! Our local farmers are simply the best!

Knowledgeable, friendly people at our market are willing to share both food and expertise--and they know the food from seed to shopping bag! I shopped our market for several years before one of the local farmers convinced me I could grow some of my own. Some buckets, dirt, and lots of good advice later, he's right! I now have a little of my own home-grown produce ... and Larry (the friendly local farmer) has been there all the way, helping me know what to do next. (I'll admit a bit of surprise when a laid-back farmer first started quoting the latest research published in agricultural journals, but on a moment's reflection I shouldn't have been surprised at all!) I still look forward to visiting our market almost every Thursday during the summer, buying a little and just enjoying the atmosphere.

Because private owned farms are becoming obsolete and it is very important to support your hard working farmers and local businesses.

For one thing, supporting the local market is the right thing to do, plus it's so fresh and tasty. And also, you get to meet so many people there. Not just the local farmers. It's a great day to get out!

All local farms sell their goods and also some local bakeries.

I like the fresh organic produce and supporting local farmers. The farmers and other vendors are always friendly and feels good to be able to support our local economy.

It's like an adventure..lots of great fruits & veggies all in one place. I always learn something new when purchasing goodies. From new recipies to new ways to plant. It's like visiting w/ an old friend. With our limited summers here on the east coast it is like a special treat.

My kids and I can walk down to the square and get a weeks worth of fresh, local produce and jellies and plants. We love it and look forward to it every week.

Happens in park in town square, weekly, on Thursdays--it's like a food fair once a week all summer long. Diverse crowd, convenient location, and arts and crafts and prepared foods stalls in addition to produce stalls.
