On March 11, Colle Farmers Market issues a response to an article from the Reedsburg Times-Press about a small farmers market in Wisconsin that is encouraging people to purchase local vegetables and other produce.
The article reports that the Reedsburg Farmers Market and Food Fair is an annual market held at the Sacred Heart School gym in Reedsburg, Wisconsin. The small market is hosted by the group The Fair Trade Neighborhood, and last year had over 300 people attend. This year, the market is trying something new. According to the Reedsburg Times-Press article, “there will be 15-minute sessions on the half hour that are like mini-seminars on topics like Reedsburg’s new community garden, why to buy locally grown food, how to preserve, what is community-supported agriculture, vermicomposting, foraging for food, and sowing seeds in winter.”
In addition to encouraging people to produce, grow and eat natural and healthy foods, one of the goals of this farmers market is to promote local vegetables and other locally grown foods in order to support the local farming economy.
Colle Farmers Market applauds the group’s efforts to promote the local agriculture industry. The company said that more and more local farmers markets around the country are using a similar strategy in order to support farmers in their area.
“This is about trying to promote our community,” said the farmers market’s organizer Marilyn Kinsman-Kharbush in the article. “It’s just people from the community we source food from. We’re always interested in good food and a fair price for those who produce it.”
Colle concludes their response by saying that educating communities about local vegetables is vital for the organic farming sector. It is also a great way to improve a community’s health, since it encourages eating natural and organic food, which has proven health advantages.
