Go Fresh and Support Local at the Grower’s Market
Chris Firestone, a botanist with the DCNR Bureau of Forestry, joined Home Page Vice-President Sara Vogt to talk about shopping locally at the Wellsboro Grower’s Market.
Chris said there are three primary reasons for shopping locally: The first one is that it helps the community because the growers live here, so the money stays in the area. The second one is the health benefits of using items made fresh that are being grown in soils that are better than those far away. The third reason to buy locally is that the environment is cleaner because fewer emissions are released by the trucks transporting the local products.
When shopping locally at the Wellsboro Grower’s Market, there are many different items to be bought and enjoyed. Some examples are locally raised meats, vegetables, flowers, cookies, and loaves of bread.
The market is at 130 Main Street in front of the First Presbyterian Church. They are open for you to come and try some of the fresh local produce and products on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
