For Farmington Lakes Apartments residents who are tired of the same old produce from the grocery store, there is another option that’s just a short drive from your home. The Oswego Country Market begins on Sunday, June 5th at 9:00 am and takes place every Sunday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm until September 25th.
The Oswego Country Market allows local farmers to connect directly with residents to give a delicious array of choices for fresh produce, eggs, meats, cheeses. The market also has specialty foods like pasta, popcorn, spices, olives, and honey to name a few. Local merchants will also have hand-made soaps, quilts, candles, and baskets among other locally made items.
The Country Market gives a delicious array of several organic food options for residents to consider. Some studies have shown that organic foods have more beneficial nutrients than those at a regular grocery store. They have more antioxidants and are more beneficial for those who have food allergies.
Shopping at the Country Market also helps our local economy. All of the produce comes from local farmers and merchants. Therefore, your money stays local. Shopping for produce locally also helps the environment. Instead of buying produce shipped into the region on trucks powered by fossil fuels, you can instead buy vegetables that were grown just down the road.
Take a short Sunday trip to downtown Oswego to peruse the many healthy food options at the Oswego Country Market. For more information about this event, please click here.
