Farmers hold the key to reducing hunger and poverty. Helping these farmers to grow more is a key way to fight hunger. To enhance the living standards of farmers, it is crucial for buyers to get their farm products from the local farmer’s market or directly from the farmer. Supporting local food and farmers means that the money you spend for that food benefits local farmers and producers. Farmers play a major role in society; they feed us. Let’s be a responsible human being and support the farmers by purchasing from local farmers’ markets. Certain large-scale businesses can also buy their raw materials directly from the farm itself. The benefit of buying from the farmer’s market is that harsh chemicals aren’t being used on food products. Local farmers use fewer pesticides and are a healthier choice to buy from them.

  • When you buy directly from the farmer, you are helping to build a community
  • Helping to support local farmers and their own families.
  • Locally grown food is good for the environment 
  • They are great for sustainability 
  • Shopping at farmers markets keeps the money you spend on food closer to your neighborhood

Local farmer’s market and organic farming

Many farmers participating in local farmer’s markets use organic methods to grow their produce. You can be certain you are purchasing chemical-free products. Organic farming is better for the soil, the environment, and your body. The future of INDIA is in safe hands if it promotes the use of organic farming and hence provides a more healthy future to the upcoming generation. The organic farming system in India is not new and is being followed since ancient times. It is a method of a farming system which primarily aimed at cultivating the land and raising crops in such a way, as to keep the soil alive and in good health by use of organic wastes (crop, animal and farm wastes, aquatic wastes) and other biological materials along with beneficial microbes to release nutrients to crops for increased sustainable production in an eco-friendly pollution-free environment.
