Why shop at the Community Farmer's Market?

  • Freshness with a few exceptions, produce is brought to the market the same day or within a day of picking. That's fresh! Fresh products are crisp, have good textures, and taste better.
  • Flavor Fruits and produce are picked when ripe, not before. Ripened on the tree or vine adds significantly to flavor.
  • Variety Farmers bring many different varieties of just about every product. Variety provides a great healthy way to enrich ones life.
  • Can talk to the farmer This is really an advantage. Since the person you buy the product from is the farmer, or his/her employee, you can ask anything about the product, for example, where it as grown, what variety it is, if the product was sprayed, and cooking suggestions.
  • Enjoy visiting with others At farmers' markets you always see people talking to one another. They are having a good time.
  • Supporting the local community Each table is used by a different vendor. By shopping at farmers' market you are supporting your community operated by local vendors.
  • Reducing the carbon footprint Distance produce travels from farm to you via a grocery store is often greater than 1000 miles. Transport to and storage at the store often requires refrigeration and these result in carbon dioxide emissions. Buying at a farmers' market results in less carbon dioxide emissions.

    La Tierra Prometida bakes home made artisan breads and provides fresh vegetables. How fresh are the vegetables? They're grown hydroponically, just a few feet from the market and they're harvested just a few hours before the market starts, at about 9 am.

    How fresh is the bread? Mine was warm to the touch. And truth be told: it is very good. We bought 3 loaves and one of them didn't make it home. The loaf we devoured was a whole wheat loaf with different varieties of seeds.
