The Farmers’ market is one of the oldest forms of direct to consumer commerce and they can found around the world. Each week state and regional growers near and far gather to sell their produce to local area buyers. Now because there are many popular farmers markets to choose from, some may be better than others, but part of the fun of it all is in finding and supporting the ones you enjoy.
In the last decade or two, local farmers markets have become extremely popular sales and marketing opportunities for many small to medium sized local farmers across America. Undoubtedly, the growing amount of weekly shoppers in attendance has helped increase their overall interest and enthusiasm for the time and effort involved. Locally, Atlanta is well known among GA and Southeast regional growers/ sellers for its abundance of popular farmers markets around the metro area.
Buying Local Helps
Heading out to a popular farmers market is usually fun, interesting, and tasty, but let’s also quickly review the advantages in buying fruits, vegetables and more at your local farmers markets. First – you’re buying fresh produce straight from a Georgia farm. Second – the food being sold typically tastes better and is unprocessed versus what you’ll probably find in the general supermarket. Third – when locals buy produce and other goods from local growers that’s good for the Georgia economy, since it helps keep small regional farmers and area entrepreneurs in business.
Home Buying Local Helps Too
What do we mean when we say that? Well when homebuyers buy their new Atlanta home from a local homebuilder that’s also good for the Georgia economy. For more than 30+ years, as local Atlanta based homebuilders, Brock Built remains committed to delivering uncompromising construction quality and superior customer service to our metropolitan Atlanta homeowners. Locally, we’ve lead the way in how we build our semi-custom and custom homes, where we build award-winning communities, and the Craftsman-style designs of the homes we build.
