The south Medford market is new this year, open on Saturday's from 9-2.

All week long we have tried to be aware of what we were eating and where it came from. We appreciate the farmers that grow food sustainably and the ranchers that raise animals humanely. In order to show our appreciation we try to be aware of our shopping choices, shop locally, buy locally, from the source when possible, from as close to home as possible, as often as possible.
All these little choices add up to reduced chemicals in our land, water, air and food. They add up to humanely raised animals that are allowed fresh air, fresh water and are not pumped full of chemicals. They add up to less chemicals in our bodies and greater health. They add up to benefits for our local economies and the families in them.
Thanks for coming along with us this week as we ate local, shopped local, and supported our local growers. I hope you found some useful information, and maybe, the next time you see a road side stand of local apples or pumpkins, you might just stop in and pick up a few for yourself!
Though, eat local week is wrapping up officially, we will still continue to make choices to support or local food economy throughout the year and I hope you will, too!
