Supermarket vs. Farmers Markets
With the rise of prices in every part of our lives right now, we all are trying to find the sweet spot to cutting costs. Well, don’t for a minute think about giving up the DFM! Our growers and producers are continuing to work extra hard to provide consistent pricing for our shoppers; all while supermarket prices are continuing to rise (cnbc.com/2022/07/24). The DFM provides a market full of local, farm fresh and high quality goods at consistent prices! The Davidson Farmers Market is the best place to get the absolute freshest and most nutritious food for your dollar!
This week our growers and producers will continue to have an abundance of summertime goods. Make sure to save time to talk with your favorite DFM growers and producers about how to preserve the summer bounty for the upcoming winter months.
We look forward to seeing you at the market this Saturday!
