Benefits of Farmers’ Markets
Understand local food. Colorado is well known for producing some of the best local peaches, apples, green chiles, local honey, melon, lamb, bison…and so much more!
Support family farms and local community.
Reduce your environmental impact. By purchasing foods that don’t need to travel far, you also help reduce the use of gasoline to transport those foods from producer to consumer.
Tips for Attending Vail Farmers’ Market
(Adapted from skeknows.com)
Go early to get the best selection of produce
Reduce the need for plastic bags by bringing your own reusable shopping bags.
Remember to bring cash in case the vendor you choose does not accept credit cards.
Let the market help plan you meals. Try finding the freshest ingredient at the market. Then search a recipe app on your phone to find a meal idea to feature that ingredient.
Remember to try something new…and save room in your bag for your old favorites, too.
