Why go to a Farmer’s Market

Did you know Kitterman Woods is located near several Farmer’s Markets & Farm Stands?

From savoring produce at the peak of freshness to meeting the people who grow your food, there are countless reasons to support farmers markets. Here are just a few!

  • The fruits and vegetables you buy at the farmers market are the freshest and tastiest available.
  • The food you buy at the farmers market is seasonal.
  • Much food found in grocery stores is highly processed and grown using pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification.
  • Family farmers need your support.
  • At the farmers market, you find an amazing array of produce that you don’t see in your average supermarket.
  • At the farmers market, you can find meats, cheeses, and eggs from animals that have been raised without hormones or antibiotics, who have grazed on green grass and eaten natural diets, and who have been spared the cramped and unnatural living conditions of feedlots and cages that are typical of animal agriculture.
  • A regular trip to a farmer’s market is one of the best ways to connect with where your food comes from.

Wouldn’t you rather stroll amidst outdoor stalls of fresh produce on a sunny day than roll your cart around a grocery store with artificial lights and piped in music?

Coming to the farmers market makes shopping a pleasure rather than a chore. The farmers market is a community hub—a place to meet up with your friends, bring your children, or just get a taste of small-town life in the midst of our wonderful city.
