Farmers market

Why promote farmers markets?

There are many great reasons to shop at the farmers market such as:

  • Buy high-quality, fresh, seasonal food
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • Support local farmers
  • Support local economy
  • Protect the environment by cutting down on excessive transportation

How can I help?

Use the Washington State Farmers Market Association to find a market near you. If you find one close by, encourage employees to walk to the market for their lunch and breaks.
