BelAir Farmers Market a Maryland Affair

By Mara Hernandez-Capili

This article is written in order to provide the readers on the benefits of Farmers market. Many things have been said about Farmers Market and this is one piece that would add up on the growing information about the goodness and advantages that Farmers Markets can bring to people. Personally, I prefer to go to a Farmers Market rather than buy my vegetables and fruits at the local department or grocery. Why? Because of the many obvious benefits that consumers can garner from shopping in a Farmers Market.

The goods being sold here are usually handpicked by the farmers during the wee hours of the morning, which provide for its best quality and appearance. Farmers market is the place where you can buy the freshest fruits and vegetables in season. Why fresh? Well, Farmers market usually open in the morning (usually around 7am) and closes at noon. Farmers also sign the agreement at the local community that indicates that their produce is 100% chemical or pesticide free which could make them ban at the place lest they decide to break the rule.

At Farmers Market people can buy the freshest jams and preserve using the fruits in season. These are well cultivated and processed by the conscientious farmers who only use the safest ingredients and method in making fruit preserves. These preserves are not juts great to use in homes but they are also great to gig away as presents because of their lovely packages.

Farmers market are usually held once a week. Crafters and their handmade and handcrafted pieces are very competitive when it comes to catching the buyers' and spectators eye during shopping. This is also a great venue to display other forms of creativity by allowing grafters to join the scene.

If visiting in Maryland, never forget to catch a glimpse of the Farmers Market.
