Have you been to a Farmers Market lately? In the Omaha/Linconln area there are several venues to choose from. Each year these venues become more popular and it is a great way to check out some of the local produce in your area and actually save some money in the process. My family and I enjoy checking out the wide variety of fresh foods from fruits and vegetables to bread and burritos.
Check out the following video and decide for yourself.
One question, I always get from my friends is “Is the food really safe?”
Here are some items I look for:
- Make sure the produce is off the ground and there is an overhang that is protecting the food from direct sunlight.
- Make sure hand sanitizer and soap are visible.
- Does the vendor provide clean bags when items are purchased
- Is the produced washed
- Does the vendor constantly insure their are is clean?
I really believe the vendors really care about their products and are showcasing and displaying their items to sell. It is a great experience to take in and it helps you focus on some great, healthy items to get your day/week started.
