Count Up to Earth Day: Tip 14 Develop a Farmer’s Market Habit

April 21st, 2012

This post is part of a series counting up to Earth Day on April 22.

Yes, Farmer’s Markets have already started for the year. Everything may not be in season yet, but early spring is a good time to find fresh lettuce, kale, chard, carrots, strawberries and more.

Buying local produce helps the environment because it cuts down on carbon emissions from food transportation.

Plus, you’re supporting local farmers, and it’s fun! Oh, and the food is fresher and tastes better than imported fare at the grocery store.

So, take your bags and go. Make a habit of it.

Do you visit the farmer’s market?
