Fresh fruits and vegetables
When you visit a farmer’s market you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables that have been recently picked from the fields by the farmers. These fruits and vegetables are more nutritious than those found in supermarkets. Your health should improve if you regularly buy these from the farmer’s market.

When you shop at a local farmer’s market, you will help the local farmers earn a living. This boosts the local economy of that location and will help independent farmers to survive. So, you support the local farmers by buying things from a farmer’s market.
A farmer’s market has a different environment compared to a supermarket. When you visit a farmer’s market it should be a more festive environment. Local people are gossiping and laughing, local artisans gather to showcase their products, food stalls on the street, and more. You should have a fun time at the farmer’s market. Visitors can experience what it’s like picking up fresh strawberries or other fruits and vegetables from the field.
You can talk to the local farmers and know-how they produce such fresh fruits and vegetables. You can learn about organic farming which will help you to start your farm if you are interested.
When you shop at a supermarket, the products are often brought from miles far away by truck or other vehicles, emitting a lot of harmful gas into the air, thus causing a greenhouse effect. When you buy from the farmer’s shop you are not doing any harm to the environment as the fruits and vegetables are picked from the nearby fields.
If you have a local farmer’s market then you should shop from there if possible. It will help the farmers and protect the environment.
