Austin is filled with farmer’s markets! If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit one we suggest you make time for one this week. Farmer’s Markets do a lot for our city and the environment but we will get to that later. First, we will explore all the selfish reasons you should visit!
• Ambience that beats the chain store grocery experience hands down
• There are unique finds
• Kid Friendly
• No middle man = cheaper prices
With those reasons alone you should be itching to get to a farmer’s market, but wait there’s more! There are ecological advantages as well!
• LOCAL FOOD
o reduce chemical waste
o less water and soil contamination
o shorter travel distand = less co2 emissons
o fresh food
o know where food is coming from
• SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
o saves farm land
