Farmers’ Markets are increasing in popularity all over the world. This informal gathering ritual represents more than just fresh, whole food. Today’s Farmers’ Markets bring people from all walks of life together to socialize and celebrate the best of what is being grown and created right there from local resources and local folks. A grass roots display of the values of entrepreneurism and pride in vocation. A growing rebellion from super stores, processed food, long lines, and dark windowless warehouses. Whatever the reason, everyone seems to agree that Farmers’ Markets just make people happy.
