Produce from Farmers’ Markets is known for being locally grown and very fresh. Farmers’ Markets allow farmers to pick produce at the peak of flavor and preserve its nutritional content. Since locally grown produce does not travel as far to get to your table, the difference in mileage saves fossil fuels and does not cause as much pollution.
