DAI will have a registration table and representative at the market to answer any questions.
4 Why attend? Farmers’ markets help connect produce growers with residents of cities and towns, and provide growers with another outlet to market their fresh produce.
While purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables from a farmers’ market helps our growers, it also benefits consumers. A diet high in fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, stroke, some types of cancer, heart disease and hypertension. That’s why when it comes to fruits and vegetables – more matters.
