What I love about the Guelph Farmers’ Market is that people come together to support CoG Tourism Winter MArket-3our local farmers by purchasing their fresh fruits and vegetables. What I love about working at the Guelph Farmers’ Market is that I feel that I can be a part of supporting others to have a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy seeing folks buy local produce from our hard working farmers because by eating local foods we get more of our nutritional nutrients with the freshest food available. Remember ‘local’ is celebrated all year long at our market.

We should support our local farmers because it benefits all of us to have access to good local food. Local farmers work hard all year long to make sure we get the best and the freshest food available. In turn we are supporting them, which also lowers our ecological footprint.
