Sep 23 2013

Farm markets

Did you know that the average American meal travels for about 1,500 miles before it arrives on your plate? There are a lot of reasons this is not ideal. Not only does it increase our carbon foot print, or how much carbon dioxide emissions our purchases contribute to the atmosphere, but it can also lead to lower quality foods.

Aug 26 2013

Organic farmers market

Local, natural, free range, organic, fair trade, all these words get thrown around so often that it can be easy to forget about what they truly mean. Buying and eating local means to seek out food that is grown in your community.

Market place foods

Many individuals spend all week looking forward to the weekend only to realize that, on at least one of the days, they will not be able to do anything fun because they have to run errands and go grocery shopping for their family. However, fresh food markets provide an opportunity to combine the two. Going to the grocery store is a hassle, and pushing through crowded aisles and waiting in line at the cashier is never any fun. In order to avoid those problems, many individuals will want to do their shopping in the fresh air and laid back atmosphere of farmer markets.

Despite constant efforts by management teams to make their supermarket feel more fun, grocery stores still feel like grocery stores. While there are probably more items there than at a fresh food market, for most, shopping for food always feels
