We want to take a moment to remind everyone of the benefits of shopping for nutrient dense produce, fish, chicken, eggs, grass-fed meat options and other healthy food options from small family farms and vendors:
* Fresh Produce rich with vitamins & nutrients essential to maintaining a healthy immune system
* Low Risk, open air environment allows for social spacing of 6 feet.
* Sunlight provides a powerful, natural disinfectant and exposure to Vitamin D
* Food directly traveling from the farm is handled at a much lower rate than in commercial systems

Farmers Markets are the 1st line of defense, to keeping people healthy and critical in accessing healthy food during this difficult time, in addition supports our community farmers and vendors.

Stay Safe and see at the Farmers Market
