Locally Grown Food
Fresh and Healthy
One of the best places to buy local produce is at a farmers
market. This is an outdoor market where farmers sell
their fruits and vegetables directly to customers. There are
over 3,100 farmers markets in the country, including many
in the San Francisco Bay Area. When you buy locally grown
produce, not only are you getting the healthiest, fresh fruits
and vegetables, but you are also helping to protect the environment,
and support local farmers. Remember, local food is good food!
