Supporting Your Local Economy Through Farmers Markets!

Local Kansas City Farmers Markets

Ways You Can Support Local Businesses During National Farmers Market Week

Now more than ever, it is essential to support our local economy.  This can come in many forms - eating at small local restaurants instead of eating at national chains, purchasing goods and services from small locally-owned businesses instead of large corporate franchises, or even purchasing from local makers on Etsy and craft fairs instead of relying on Amazon.  One of the best ways to do so is to purchase food from local sources.

This week marks “National Farmers Market Week” so it is a great reminder to shop at your local farmers market for the best and most convenient access to fresh organic fruits vegetables, and other local products. We are proud supporters of small businesses, partly in truth, because the Ask Cathy Marketing Group is one!

In the past, we have given you information on why you should purchase food from local farmers at local markets and provided a short list of popular spots.  Here is that list.

Today, we are delving deeper into other opportunities to you to experience some other markets. We are so fortunate to live in an area where there are several.   Have you tried shopping at any of these?

Looking to live closer to your favorite farmers market?  The Ask Cathy Team can help. Set up a personalized property search here to see what is currently available!
