Apples to Apples, Farmers’ Markets are more Affordable

“Affordable” may not be the first word that comes to mind when people think about their local farmers market. “Fresh, flavor-packed, high-quality, diverse, and nutrient-dense” are more widely accepted descriptions of the produce, meats, and cheeses you’ll find here. But shopping at your local farmers market can be affordable, it can even save you money – especially if you’re willing to cook at home with the fruits and vegetables that are abundant at the peak of their season!

AIM compared the prices of organic and conventional produce at our Marin Civic Center Farmers Markets to the prices at our neighborhood Whole Foods and Safeway. May fresh and local food be enjoyed by all!
