After going to the Farmers Market I thought "Why doesn't every one buy their produce here instead of going to the chain grocery stores?!?" The food is for the most part cheaper, usually better quality and so much better for the environment and supports the local farmers and builds community. I think one reason is just simply people not knowing about them. Not being aware of them or the many benefits. I'm super excited to finally know about them and can't wait to go back next week! :)
Edit: I forgot to mention the awesome food I got at the farmers market! I was able to get a hand full of clementines, a basket of strawberries, a bundle of spinach, two big oranges, 4 plumbs, and that pomello (or whatever the name of that fruit was) for under $13! It filled almost a whole cloth target bag and I payed less then $13 for it all! Yippie!
