Our farmers market in Roslindale opens this weekend. We've been flyering the community encouraging neighborhood residents to patronize the market. The Roslindale market is one of nearly 200 markets in Massachusetts. Not only do farmers markets provide access to fresh locally-grown food with minimal transportation, but supporting local farmers also helps to keep agricultural land in production. Yes, supporting your local farmers market is another way to help save open space.
It's good for the farmers, the environment, and you.
