Shopping at Farmer’s Markets in Central Ohio
â€˜Tis the season for fresh blueberries, carrots, and summer raspberries. These and other fresh fruits and veggies will not only be available in grocery storesâ€™ produce aisles this season, but theyâ€™ll also make their way onto city sidewalks, as theyâ€™re sold during local farmers markets.
This hour, weâ€™ll talk about growing, selling, and buying locally with various farmerâ€™s markets this season, and how eating healthy and local can prove beneficial to yourself, small farmers, and also the community.
Farmerâ€™s markets have always been a great place to purchase high-quality, local produce. In Ohio, the number of farmerâ€™s markets have increased by 66 percent in the last five years.
