Next week is official Massachusetts Farmers Market week, and there is a blog-a-thon going on from August 22-28th! It is so important to support local farmers in your area. Having access to & choosing to consume local food is a win-win: it enhancing your community's social & economic development through support of local farms, while providing you with fresh, delicious & healthy food options.
Straight from the Federation of Massachusetts Farmers Market:
"Hosted by the blog In Our Grandmothers' Kitchens with support from the Dept. of Agricultural Resources and Mass Farmers Markets, the Blogathon will promote locally grown foods AND also raise funds for the work of Mass Farmers Markets, the non-profit charitable organization that helps farmers markets throughout the Commonwealth.
Here’s how bloggers can get involved: Sometime during the week of August 22-28, put your post on the internet. Please make sure your post mentions the blogathon, includes a link to the official blogathon web site and to In Our Grandmothers' Kitchens, and encourages readers to donate to Mass Farmers Markets."
