Local Voices

"I shop at the grower's market because I think it's important to feel empowered around money and choice.  Supporting your community is important to make connections with other community members, and to build a thriving, sustainable economy that is good for the Earth, and your health and well-being."

Local Voices

"Supporting our own farmers and food producers not only keeps our local economy strong, it also helps build a strong, vibrant, resilient countryside, keeping rural lands in food production while building regional food security for all of us. It fosters the interdependence that's vital to a healthy community."
