Why Shop Local?
Whether leaving the market with a bag packed full of fresh produce or just a single loaf of bread, you are making more than just your stomach happy. Shopping local has more benefits than you could count on two hands, but we have narrowed it down to just a few of the reasons you should support small business
- It’s Economical: Shopping local puts three times as much money in your local economy.
- It Fosters A Sense of Community: Local businesses are run by community members, for community members.
- It Creates Jobs: Contributing to a local business helps create high quality, unique jobs for members of your community.
- It’s Farm to Table Fresh: Getting your fresh produce through a local farmer allows you to get the fruits and vegetables at their peak freshness because they did not have to travel hundreds of miles to get to you.
