Ag Spotlight – The Grower’s Market

Locally grown just for you, this summer at the Grower's Market!

 

by Melissa Bravo - June 12, 2016

Today’s producer spotlight shines on the vendors at the Wellsboro Growers Market. Farmer markets like this one are a timeless tradition in rural counties. Regardless of the changing demographics of the town and consumer preferences in dietary choices, the produce, meat, dairy and hand crafted goods produced locally are always in demand. Visitors can take away a taste of what makes this part of Pennsylvania such a great place to visit, time and time again.

The benefits of eating locally grown food are many. The adage “You Are What You Eat” is one well known fact. ‘FRESH’ takes on a whole new meaning when it comes from “our garden to yours” and not from a farm hundreds even thousands of miles away; or from across the sea.

While there is always an abundance of wholesale produce in local grocery stores, the storage wilt and/or preservatives used to keep produce, meat and dairy products from spoiling are not present in freshly harvested, locally grown foods.

Local ‘flavor’ is something that has to be tasted, sipped and the aroma inhaled to be appreciated. Once you partake of the locally grown produce and meats available and meet the vendors who have brought their wares to sell, you’ll find yourself wanting to come back for more!

So, please do! Come on back for more! The Wellsboro Growers Market is now open every Thursday from 3pm to 6 pm. They are located on Main Street just past the court house in front of the First Presbyterian Church.

If you can’t make it on Thursdays, most vendors sell direct from their farm. So be sure to find out where they are located and when their farm stands are open this year.

To see a snapshot of locally grown meats and vegetables in season now and other goods produced by residents of Tioga County, Pennsylvania watch the Wellsboro Grower’s Market Feature, today!
