Farmer’s Markets on the Emerald Coast

Farmer’s Markets on the Emerald Coast

Local farmers go the extra country mile to provide an invaluable service, and they love what they do. By picking their produce at the peak of ripeness, farmers promise a fresh and flavorful culinary experience for your family. (After all, there’s nothing quite like biting into homegrown heirloom tomatoes that taste like little drops of sunshine.)

Produce is often picked the day of the farmer’s market, simply to end up in your dinner that night. It could only get fresher if you planted and picked it yourself.

Farmers at your local market often use ‘green’ growing methods. The produce tends to be grown without pesticides, eggs are from happy, cage-free chickens, and jams are made in small batches and sold in reusable glass containers.


Farmer’s markets also provide a vehicle for local artisans to sell products like homemade soap. So, you know not only what goes in your body and where it came from, but what goes on your body, as well.

Best of all, farmer’s markets provide a sense of community. Consumers know that they are getting produce and other goods from neighbors who care about what they do. Once you get to know your local farmers, you can begin to plan meals around local, seasonal produce. It’s the circle of life; you take care of your local farmer, and he or she will take care of your entire family. Then shopping for food and cooking becomes a joy instead of a chore.
