Our mission is to develop and strengthen farmers markets for long term sustainability and meaningful community impact, with a focus on building a stronger local food system.
Why Support Locally Grown?
Enhance local economy:
By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Save natural resources:Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Provide learning opportunities:Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture
Supporting a way of life:The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
