Help bring a green market to your neighborhood.
Green markets bring fresh, locally grown food directly from the farmers without middlemen.
Why Support Local Food?
1. Locally grown food tastes better and is better for you because they use less preservatives.
2. Local food preserves genetic diversity and is usually free of genetic modification.
3. Local food supports local farm families and preserves open space.
4. Less distance = Less Fossil Fuels = Less Dependence on Foreign Oil.
