Spring is making itself known. On today’s dog walk, crocuses were popping out of the soil. Trees have begun to bud. My appetite is ready for locally sourced, delicious produce; baking; cheeses; meats and crafts. Where’s a guy with a hankering for seasonal goodies to go?

Farmers’ markets are a critical player in the nation’s economy, food systems and communities. They connect rural areas, farmers to customers, and bringing fresh ingredients to diets.
When food is produced, processed, distributed and sold within the same area, the money stays in the local economy—which can lead to economic development and job creation.
Demand for locally produced food is growing just as the crops do. The whole movement gives farmers important income opportunities, without taking on the burden of costs such as national shipping and storage.
What began as smart business for many small farmers has evolved into an event for the entire community, with many families and patrons viewing a trip to the Saturday morning market as the start of their weekend.
Furthermore, businesses in the community benefit from the additional foot traffic brought by the market. There are currently over 8,000 American farmers’ markets, demonstrating the continued demand for community-oriented commerce and the many contributions they make to their local economies.
Try new foods and enjoy the wonderful, fresh produce offered. Reconnect with your local farmers, vendors, neighbors and community at the Narrowsburg Farmers’ Market.
Until then, garden planting season begins very soon. For those craving Easter fun, the Tusten Youth Commission will hold its annual event on Sunday, April 2. Visit www.welcometonarrowsburg.com for schedule information as it develops.
