Farmers Markets!

Now, I know you’ve probably been preached to about the benefits of buying organic foods, so I’m not gonna re-hash what you already know. But did you know that you can get great organic products locally? Even in the city!

Locally grown food comes short distances to the market, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions and the use of harmful packaging materials. Most food in the US travels 1500 miles to get to your grocery store, on average. Here’s a list of awesome Georgia farmer’s markets:

All of these markets are a great summer activity. I hope I’ve helped show you one of the best ways to have a good impact on the environment. : )
