The Market this Week: So Many Reasons to Shop the ELPFM!

Hey friends, there are three big reasons to shop at a farmers’ market: fairness for farmers, substantially more nutritious food for you and yours, and a more vibrant community for all of us. According to the Farmers’ Market Coalition,  “Farmers earn fair prices for the fruits of their labor by selling directly to consumers. Consumers gain access to fresh, nutritious, local produce. Communities regain a figurative “town square,” experiencing the many positive outcomes of foot traffic and animated public space. “(farmersmarketcoalition.org)

 

This week at the market, we’ve got three more reasons to visit:

Dunbar Organic Farms will have fresh chickens for sale this week as well as organic produce. This will be their first time visiting us this season!

Danforth Coxwell Library is hosting storytime 4-4:45pm in the kids’ tent!

YMCA will have free button-making for the kids and family fitness demos.

So now we’re up to 6 reasons, right? Let’s throw in live music by David Chandross, wine from Flat Rock Cellars, fresh fries, great cheeses, and some ready-made pies and donuts and salsas to get up to a baker’s dozen. See you at the market!

  1. Enjoyed fresh produce from last week’s market. A huge thank you to all for organizing, and to the farmers for making the trek to our ‘hood.
