Farmer’s Market Vs Supermarket – 10 Reasons Why Farmer’s Markets Are Better

From savoring fresh products to meeting the people who grow your food, there are countless reasons to support farmer’s markets. Here we give you top 10 reasons why they’re better than supermarkets:
  1. Real Flavors - The fruits and vegetables you buy at the farmer’s market are the freshest and tastiest available. Fruits are allowed to ripen fully in the field and are brought directly to you—no long-distance shipping, no gassing to simulate the ripening process, no sitting for weeks in storage.
