Access to fresh, healthy, local food has become more important than ever. Farmers markets, including the Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market, have and will continue to provide this essential service to communities across the nation. During the coronavirus pandemic, farmers markets have served as essential businesses, helping to connect farmers to customers and customers to local, healthy food. In a time of social distancing, these dedciated individuals have adapted new safety measures and protocols to keep the market open and customers, staff, and vendors safe.
The most powerful tool available to support your local farmers and food economies is your fork. Farmers and food businesses rely on farmers markets to connect directly with you as consumers and now is your opportunity to show your support of these essential markets.
If you have ever been to Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market, you may already know it’s a gold standard for farmers markets in the area. The TVMS sets the standard:
- Market volunteers are consistently told by shoppers from both near and far how friendly and wonderful the market is.
- The TVFM participates in a number of programs that make access to fresh, local produce more affordable for low-income individuals who shop at the market.
- A number of local food institutions source some of their produce from TVFM vendors through the Tuscarawas Valley Food Hub Initiative, which is a program started and operated by the Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market that helps to strengthen the local food economy.
- In a normal season, the TVFM offers so much more than just fruits and vegetables with things like cooking demos, live music, community partners, and children’s activities. However, those are on hold for the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
So, as you begin looking for fall activities you can do with the whole family, be sure to ad a visit to the Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market to your list of ‘to dos.’
