Support your local farmers market and seek out sustainable meat and vegetables

Commit to this action.

Farmers’ markets are a fantastic way to discover local, ecological produce and sustainable meat and dairy. However, just because someone sells at a farmers’ market doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s environmentally friendly.

So when you go, make sure you ask the right questions: Were the fruits and vegetables made without pesticides or chemical additives? Were the cows, pigs or chickens raised with the highest animal welfare standards? Were they confined to small spaces or allowed to roam freely? Were they raised without antibiotics or added hormones?

Many farmers will be glad to share their farming methods with you. And buying at a farmers’ market shows that you support local farmers. If you’re ready, check out the online resources to find one near you.
