Never been to a farmers market before? Then you are missing out! Farmers markets offer many benefits to you and the community. The produce is seasonal and picked at the peak of freshness, so you get to enjoy local fruits and vegetables when they are at their very best. Farmers often let you sample products you might not otherwise try and they can offer new recipes to cook certain foods. Farmers markets are fun for the whole family, encouraging healthy eating habits for you and your kids. When you shop at a farmers market you are supporting the local economy and local agriculture, and many are now accepting SNAP and WIC benefits to purchase foods.

The Simply Dial 2-1-1 Get Connected, Get Answers column is provided by Great Rivers 2-1-1, an information & referral and crisis line service. Professionally trained staff can answer your questions about local, statewide, and national resources and can assist you with all kinds of life situations and challenges.
