Purchasing from your local farmers markets will create a ripple effect of positive notions for the economy and your dinner table. According to Willamette Valley Agriculture, over the past 10 years local farmers are on the rise and have served “An estimated 90,000 visitors per week.” Many farmers and vendors at the local farmers markets are accepting the Oregon Trail card and have partnered with Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) programs to promote healthy food purchases from your local farmers. This is a Win-Win people! Some items consumers can look for are produce, eggs, meat, dairy, honey, rice, plant starters, and much more!!! There are farmers markets throughout the Willamette Valley. . .
