Shop With Us to Support Local Farms and Producers 


Attending Farmers Markets supports the economy and the environment!

The most basic argument for why local food is better for the environment is that it travels a shorter distance to get to you, so it produces fewer greenhouse emissions from truck exhaust or jet fuel. If you look beyond just location, you can see even more positives compared to commercial agriculture. Plastic waste? Forget about it! Food grown locally comes straight off the vine or out of the field to the market. Knowing the food is fresh means more flavor, less preservatives or pesticides, and a healthier you!

Shopping at the market builds community! You may bump into your neighbors while picking out potatoes or searching for snacks. Many of our market participants vend to local restaurants. Farmer's markets naturally foster diversity, encouraging people of all races, financial class, age, and lifestyle to come together in search of locally grown food and artisan crafts.  We encourage everyone to stop in and visit us downtown, whether you are a Hammond regular or passing through!
