The Harvard Farmer's Market also doubles the value of EBT purchases up to $15 per week.
Why buy local?
It builds community. Buying directly from farmers at markets allows you to understand the processes that make up food systems, gives you insight into the seasons and the land, and creates a connection between you and the people who grow your food.
It benefits the environment. Small-scale farms conserve soil and important fields, meadows, and surrounding open spaces that are crucial to maintaining a healthy environment.
It supports local families. When you buy directly from a local farmer, you allow them to sell their produce for full price. By selling at retail, instead of at wholesale prices to middlemen, family farms are able to generate a profit and stay on their land.
