Consider Shopping at Farmers Markets

You can’t beat the freshness.  Sometimes the produce is picked that very same morning.

Shopping at farmers markets creates community.  You know where the food comes from and meet the people who grow it.  And you buy directly from the farmer.

Only purchase as much as you can consume within the week.

Often the farmer or salesperson can provide you with cooking tips and recipes.

Farmers markets offer a variety of items that you may not find in the supermarket.

Some markets have fun events as well such as recipe contests, wine tastings, and cooking demonstrations.

Some markets accept Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (EBT) which is part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Check your local town magazines or newspapers to find the location of farmers markets in Rockland County.
