Local Farmers Market

Everyone always associates farmers markets with summertime, but not in Akron! 
The Countryside Conservancy has made it so you can get your local organic food fix throughout the winter.

3 reasons to buy local food:
1. Taste is better since the food is fresh and organic.
2. Healthier than food that is shipped across the country, which also makes food loose its nutrients. Local produce is also preservative free.
3. Supports local farmers, and is often cheaper in price for better quality products.

Here are just a few photos that I took today.

Really great looking produce for the middle of February!

This stuff is sooo good Ohio City Pasta

I cannot wait to make some hearty soup or fresh pasta and vegetables with my market buys!
If you are local to the Akron area, you should check this out at Old Trail School.
The next market is Saturday, March 3rd!
