Why I choose to shop at Farmers Market!

I was first introduced to the Farmers Market at a very young age. My parents loved to start our weekend mornings with fresh produce shopping, under the bridge of Alameda, California. I loved the experience of seeing different vendors, it almost reminded me of a flea market. It didn't compare to shopping at a regular grocery store, due to the lack of variety in produce. At the Farmers Market, you get that one on one time with the actual farmers, which often lead to great deals. You get to know them on a different and personal level, and all the proceeds go directly to them. They can be more cost effective than most regular grocery stores, also without the added pesticides. Grocery stores don't give you the freshness you're looking for vs. the Farmers Markets, which supply you with organic produce and specialty items. Within the vicinity of the Farmers Market, they have different local shops and other vendors, such as fresh herbs, treats, and unique products. So it's no secret where to do your produce shopping, go to your local Farmers Market and support local farmers! Shop at Fresh52 Farmers Market.
