Top 10 Reasons to Visit the Farmer’s Market

Summer is winding down and harvest time is in full swing. Here are the top ten reasons why you should visit the Tyngsboro farmer’s market this week. Thank you to Mother Earth News for reminding us why buying local produce is sustainable and just makes good sense.

1. Feed your family the freshest food.
Farmer’s markets offer the freshest food around—usually only hours from the field—so you get top quality, perfectly ripe flavor.

2. Help the environment.
Eating locally saves vast amounts of packaging waste and energy required to ship food around the globe.

3. Shop organic for global health.
Farmer’s markets attract vendors who use organic growing methods, meaning you gain access to food free of synthetic pesticides. Plus, buying organic supports good land stewardship.

4. Become part of your community.
Festive and lively, farmer’s markets are social venues where you bump into friends and meet local farmers face to face.

5. Support local farmers and your local economy.In an era when sustainable farmers struggle to survive, farmer’s market profits—which go straight into growers’ pockets—help keep small farms alive.

6. Save money.Buying from farmers eliminates the cost of the middleman and pricey shipping, so you get more value for your dollar.

7. Learn about food.
Kids and adults alike enjoy exploring firsthand how foods are grown, harvested, and eaten by browsing market stalls and talking to farmers.

8. Boost your nutrition.
Tantalizing produce displayed in farmers’ bins and baskets encourages you to eat more fruits and vegetables, so it’s easy to consume the recommended five servings a day.

9. Treat your senses.
Experiencing the colors, smells and tastes of a farmer’s market is a sensual experience that connects you to the land.

10. Find new cooking ideas.
Community chefs at the farmer’s market are happy to share recipes for in-season foods.

Vendor Spotlight: Kirk Farm

Kirk Farm, (formerly Kemp Farm,) has been a family farm for over one hundred years. Until 1967 it was a dairy and chicken farm. Then in 1972 Kemp Farm became Kirk Farm.

They began raising dairy replacements and beef. This continued until 1982, when Kirk Farm began growing vegetables. Today they grow seven acres of vegetables and two greenhouses of bedding plants. In 1998 the farm switched their operation to a healthier, natural method of production, using no chemical fertilizers or sprays, a practice that they continue to this day. Kirk Farm sells what they grow through several local farmer’s markets in season.

Kirk Farm sells wholesale, through our farm stand and is also a C.S.A., serving the Groton area. Visit their stand while you’re at the Tyngsboro Farmer’s Market.
