Connecting your food to the farmer: Support local producers

Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley is bustling with farmers' markets again this summer.  These markets have become community meeting places where you can support local producers, artisans and musicians.  You will find soap, flowers, vegetables, meats, baked goods, preserves, jewelry, pottery, handmade crafts, photography, maple syrup, live music, and much more at your local market. Get to know your local farmers and producers and support them. Local food tastes better and is better for you. Buying local builds community, preserves open spaces, benefits the environment, supports local families, and is an investment in the future. It is incredible to immerse yourself in the farmers' market culture, and to learn about the valuable talent and expertise we have in the Annapolis Valley. For more information on Nova Scotia’s Farmers' Markets, visit THIS website.

The Annapolis Valley Regional Library Bookmobile will be at the Annapolis Royal Farmers' and Traders Market on Saturday July 12, 2014. The Bookmobile will also be at the Windsor Farmers' Market on Saturday, July 26,  Wolfville Farmers' Market on Saturday, August 9, and the North Mountain United Tapestry in Harbourville on Saturday, August 23. We are looking forward to meeting you!
