Vegetables at Farmer's Market

You can save money, give back to your community by cutting out the middleman, and ensure your family is getting the best nutrients for their body.  These important nutrients found in your local market include: vitamin A, C, B-complex, and iron.  Each of these substances provides many health benefits to the body. 

Another major benefit for shopping at a Farmers Market would be promoting environmental sustainability.  Vast amounts of resources and energy are used to transport foods to our grocery stores.  These markets, and home gardens, can improve air quality, reduce harmful effects of runoff, and stabilize ground soil.  There are multiple reasons why participating and purchasing from these markets are beneficial to you and the environment.  To find a market in nearest you, please refer to brief list provided or click the link (http://agebb.missouri.edu/fmktdir/view.asp?region=6).
