Hello Saluki Green Action Team members!
Did you know that although the outdoor Carbondale Farmers’ Market closes in November, you can continue buying from your local farmers throughout winter at the indoor Carbondale Community Farmers Market? The winter farmers market is open December through March at Carbondale Community High School on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
Take Action: Shop at your farmers’ markets! Buying from local farmers benefits the environment, the community, and you:
- Buying local reduces food miles, which decreases the fossil fuel emissions that go into getting food from the farm to your plate.
- Shopping at the farmers’ market supports local producers and puts money back into your community.
- Food loses nutritional value over time; buying local ensures that your food is fresh and healthy.
- The farmers’ markets and the Neighborhood Co-op Grocery are participating members in the LINK Up Illinois program so for every dollar you spend on fruits and vegetables there you receive a $1 coupon, thereby doubling your purchasing power.
