Locally grown food tastes better. Food grown in your own community is usually picked within the past day or two. It’s crisp, sweet, and loaded with flavor. Several studies have shown that the average distance food travels from farm to plate is 1,500 miles. In a weeklong delay from harvest to dinner plate, sugars turn to starches, plant cells shrink, and produce loses its vitality.
Come out and help support your local small farmers and your local economy. The more we support each other the faster we will all recover. And there’s nothing like fresh produce, plants, and other handgrown and homemade items. It’s great to know how your food was produced and who is behind all that hard work.
Join us across the street from Rock Creek Park in the pavilion on Farmington Road. Fridays from 6 am till 12 noon. Happy shopping!
