It's Market Season!

farmers markets logoThe Spring Markets have been open for several weeks now, and with so much rain the past couple of days the tents are sure to be filled with amazing produce and products.

The markets are a truly unique and wonderful tool to build both local food economies, and authentic communities. One of the struggles within the local food system is translating the many inherent and intangible benefits into a monetary mold ($$$). So many of the benefits of local food come in the form of things that money can’t buy. They manifest in the presence of community interaction and solidarity, in building person to person trust , in healthier diets, healthier mentalities, and in a population that has a grounded sense of where goods come from, and how the world works. Our farmers' markets are coming into full swing, so lets go support them!
