Why buy local?
Local produce is nutritious and affordable. Many Minneapolis farmers markets also sell organic produce, as well as flowers and artisan food and gifts. Purchasing food from local farmers supports the local economy and helps farmers to retain their livelihood. Farmers markets provide the opportunity to connect with the local families who planted and harvested the food. Farmers markets dramatically reduce the journey that food takes to your table and avoid costly, wasteful packaging and emissions. Most farmers markets are accessible by foot or bicycle, providing another way to reduce climate change.
With so many fresh food items at the market, sometimes it can be overwhelming to think about all the different meals that you can create with items from the farmers market. For some quick and easy recipes, visit this page that provides with you some great recipes.
