Farm-Fresh Direct To Your Table

Market_BIf you’re looking to ditch the grocery store produce you’ve been buying, try checking out a farmers market where you can pick up fresh produce and other products from local farmers. Scattered across Long Island are farmers markets and farm stands that provide the local communities with fresh food. At one of these markets, you can find fresh produce, dairy, breads and even meat, along with a number of other products.

“The highlight of the market is the fresh fruits and vegetables,” said Ethel Terry, director of multiple markets around Long Island. “Everyone sells out, and it gets very busy with long lines.”

Not only are you supporting local businesses when shopping at these markets, but also you are buying healthy products. Not only do the markets sell food, but also some of them have events, such as cooking lessons and recipe handouts.

“I’ve been running these markets for 24 years now, and people always come out; they love it,” said Terry.
