10 Ways to Maximize Your Food Dollar

Produce at the Rochester Downtown Farmers Market is one of the best ways to maximize your food dollar.
  1. Local farmers have a better selection of produce
  2. Local vegetables are fresher
  3. Fresher means vegetables will keep longer
  4. Longer shelf life means less waste due to spoilage
  5. Fresher means vegetables have better nutrition
  6. Local produce is more sustainable (less miles from farm to table).
  7. Get to know your farmer so you know how your produce is grown.
  8. Local purchase dollars stay in the community
  9. Local produce supports local farmers and families
  10. Local vegetables are far less likely to be genetically modified.
