Editorial: Farmers’ markets help land, localsOct 27th, 2010 | By Environmental Headlines -- CT environmental news | Category: Farm
On Saturday afternoons, students who take a quick walk past E.O. Smith High School will discover a convenient opportunity to support and enjoy locally-grown agriculture: the Storrs’ Farmers’ Market. At the market, customers can shop for healthier food choices without breaking the bank. For students who live off campus, the market is an affordable option with a wide selection to choose from – fruits, vegetables and more. Fresh flowers are also sold, perhaps a nice surprise for one’s significant other after a busy day.
