'Through the Seaside Farmers Market our community can learn about seasonality and sustainable farming practices by directly getting to know the people who grow their food. The Market aims to empower through education and awareness, thus allowing people to make active decisions towards the betterment of their personal health, that of their families, and the planet as a whole. Join us in the Seaside Amphitheater every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.'
With an increasing desire for organic foods and supporting “local”, it’s no surprise that Farmers Market’s are on the rise in America, with the USDA reporting the number of registered farmers’ markets has increased by 2.3% from 2015 to 2016.
So, what’s there to love about Farmers Markets and why are they becoming so increasingly popular? For one, you’re able to talk to the farmer directly, asking questions like, “Where was it grown? Is it organic? What methods do you use for weed control? What new items will you have in the coming weeks?”
Then, there’s the option of fresh eggs from cage-free chickens; beef from happy cows; honey from backyard beekeepers; even homemade dog treats for your furry friend. A farmers market is more than just a place to shop. By supporting the Seaside farmers market, you’re helping sustain small-scale farmers in a world where industrial-scale agriculture is the norm.
