Farmers Markets

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!
