A restaurant that serves meals made with fresh produce purchased directly from a farmer or farmer’s market, is a restaurant that has a menu with benefits.
Customers crave fresh and appreciate knowing they supported a local farmer. Fresh produce means less preservatives, less packaging, less travel time in a truck, and more nutrients for your body.
Farmer’s markets are a platform for local farmers, growers, florists, and artisans to showcase their work. Much love and commitment goes into growing, all the while minimizing chemicals and pesticides, and it shows. We hit up a Farmer’s market in every new town we touch down in.
Here is a list of Farmer’s markets in some of our favourite major cities. Grab your reusable bags, a hat, a friend, and head down early for the best selection. You never know, some of the beautiful produce you see might be featured at the Restaurant you end up dining at.
