Calgary Farmers Markets - Buy Local YEAR ROUND

Do you enjoy making a trip to your local farmers market? Well you are not alone. Buying locally grown, fresh produce and other goods is gaining popularity, and it is no surprise since there are so many benefits.


Buying from your local farmer allows you to support the local economy and farmers. It means that the food you are eating comes from nearby, and does not require us to waste lots of energy and petroleum to ship the food half-way around the world. You are eating food in your own environment, where it has perfectly-created nutrients for your specific climate and region. You are also supporting the environment by reducing the usage of fossil fuels.




By shopping at the local farmers market, you will eat seasonally, fresh and ripe. This is another great way to increase your overall health. Supermarkets offer too much variety and the food is picked before it has ripened decreasing the vitality. Because it was grown locally, there is a good chance that the apple you buy from the farmer was picked a few days ago. This is virtually impossible in a big supermarket. There is no doubt that locally-grown foods, which are fresher, just simply taste better. You will never be able to eat a carrot from the grocery store again!
