Steps to Take

Did you know that Wayland has a fantastic Farmers’ Market? Both the Summer and the Winter Farmers’ Markets are one-stop-shopping with vegetables (of course), fish, meat, mushrooms, cheese, breads, jams and jellies and pickles, pasta, desserts and... ice cream and also fresh-squeezed lemonade. It's like a supermarket only better because the food is local, directly from the farm.

That means the food has less "food miles" on it, less miles that it had to sit in a refrigerated, polluting, gas-guzzling truck to get here. Also, think about who your parents would be spending their money on: local peole, who will then spend it locally too. And... you get to talk to the person who actually grew and/or prepared the food: did they use pesticides on their fields? Did they put preservatives in their cookies? These farmers will gladly answer those questions.

The markets are also a ton more fun than the supermarket.
