FARMERS' MARKETS

hey bale

Farmers' Markets are going strong all over the country, from small towns to big cities like Los Angeles and New York. Farmers' Markets reconnect the consumer with the people who grow their food and provide an opportunity to eat what is locally grown in your area. Walmart may still have lots of customers but more and more people shop at farmers' markets each year.
