SUPERMARKETS
REACHING OUT FOR
FARMERS MARKET CUSTOMERS

According to Supermarket News,
local foods are one of the hottest trends
in grocery chain stores right now.
Supermarkets are featuring "farm fresh"
and locally sourced produce
normally found at farmers markets.
(Well, at least the big boys are trying!)

Shoppers like buying local, because:

o It's good for the environment.
(Less fuel needed to transport local products.)
o It supports the local economy.
(Keeping jobs and industry here.)
o Local means fresher, more flavorful.

(Farmers markets shouldn't be too threatened.)

You can check out farmers markets, family farms
and community food co-ops by going to
