Our communities would not be the same without our local farmers. Help them by purchasing their produce, meats, dairy and more. When making your grocery lists for the week, be sure to check out what is available from the Nelson Farmer’s Market Cooperative and local producers.

Fill your pantries this week and every week with local goods and fresh meats and support your local farmers’ markets. While the operations are different this year, the quality of the products is exceptional. We can all work together support those that provide locally grown foods to our communities!
