  1. I agree with Mr. Gorman supporting local farmers is a great thing to do and it helps the economy out in a positive way.

  2. I love the farmer’s market! It’s a wonderful place to purchase great local foods. My kids also love the sights, sounds, and tastes of the market. 🙂

  3. The Athens Farmers market offers many seasonal items and the prices are very reasonable. The best Farmer’s Market around 🙂 Supporting local farmers really helps break the corperate reliance that most of us have sadly fallen into.

  4. Great Article! 🙂 inspiring! Eating healthy is so important for families. The Farmers Market is such a convenient way to make healthier food choices.

  5. Very good article, I think the Farmers Market is such a good way to support local farmers. I love going there so I can get all the healthy food I want.

  6. I havent been to this certain farmers market, but i;m sure i would enjoy it. I go to the Lancaster farmers market.

  7. I love the farmer’s market. I think it’s a great idea to support the local farmers. Fresh food is so much better for you instead of the chemically induced food that we usually eat.

  8. i have never been to the farmers market in athens….i am sure to make it a point to go there. i always go to the ones in vinton co and jackson co, but they are soo small… i love the fact that they (athens) still grow in winter. i agree we keep what produce and meats, that we can, locally.

  9. I think this was really very informative, I myself absolutely love fresh grown and fresh picked veggies. And you really can’t get them anywhere else but a farmers market, and i really was unaware so many veggies like squashed (my favorite) were fresh grown this time of year, very very good, thank you!

  10. Thanks for all the comments everyone. I’m glad you enjoyed reading the article, and I’ll continue to write as time permits. Please share this link with your friends and family so we can continue to grow and spread the news about the benefits of eating locally.

    I’m open to new ideas, so if you have any insight into story ideas please shoot me a message. Also, if you know of any writers, photographers, or videographers who’d like to contribute to this blog, please send them my way.
