    Sustainability

    We’re passionate about doing our part to help the environment. Buying food from local farmers not only supports the local agricultural community and economy, but it also decreases "food miles."

    On average, food travels 1,500 miles from farm to plate. But when you buy locally, your food travels an average of 60 miles. This decrease in distance lowers fuel consumption, greenhouse gases, air pollution and your risk of related diseases, including asthma, lung disease, lung cancer and heart disease.

    It also cuts down on the use of plastics in packaging and allows farmers to pick their food when it's ripe, maximizing the nutrient content and giving you fresher food that tastes better.

    Our farmers market sells reusable AAMC tote bags, so you can do your part to care for the environment.
