Head to our farmers' market
Come to the Corvallis Indoor Winter Market this Saturday! Here, you'll meet the people who actually grow the plants that end up on your table. You can ask them questions, handle the vegetables, squeeze the fruit...without the whole experience squeezing you. You see, the produce at a farmers' market is actually fresher, and often cheaper, than buying the same fruits and veggies at a supermarket. That's because transportation costs are lower. All of the produce is locally grown. Plus it will last longer once you get home. Don't let making an extra trip or driving a little farther put you off. Once you see how much you'll save and the freshness of the produce, you'll keep coming back. Plus, the entire experience of visiting a farmers' market on a Saturday morning is something you can share with the entire family!
