I always buy something from the farmer's market (because I love meat) but is that good or bad?

It's good, because it supports your local economy and agriculture.

I always try to buy local, either directly from the farms themselves or at a farmer's market.

Ah, thanks. The meat we mostly get from the farmers market would have to be pork :twisted:

My family often buys most Of our produce from the farmers market. Sometimes we buy some meat, but it is often expensive. ;.;

I think the store we buy from has food from local markets; not entirely sure.

Not only does my family buys local, but we grow our own vegetables for dinner and berrries and fruit. As well as we breed ducks for eggs. (Not meat)

The camp that I went to in third grade has a farmer's market, and it was pretty nearby. We got some food from there, but we haven't gotten any recently (I admit, I forgot about it until now) so I'm going to ask my mom about it.

I'm gonna go to one of those coin-exchange machines (my family has like a billion pennies and such) and change it into dollar bills to raise money to donate, too :)

Even if you buy meat from Farmer's market, it is better then nothing. Would you rather have a chicken, crammedd into a rusty cage all its life, or one that was hand-fed? They are more healthy for you, and it helps support farmers instead of huge factories, which helps stop air pollution. Same goes for veggies. See, it leads to a lot. Plus, Farmer's Markets often sell interesting crafts, so you could look areound for those.

We do sometimes, and we also grow some of our own vegtables like tomatoes, corn, etc.

I'm a vegetarian too, but I go there for all the vegetables, we got some chickens there once too, for the eggs.
I'm kind of vegetarian,because I do eat fish,what I totally don't eat is red meat(beef,pork,etc...)
Anyway,I sometimes buy from farmer's market,but not really much because the nearest one is like 1 hour away from were I live,however,my mom buys organic products from the super market,she rarely buys vegetables and fruits that aren't organic.

Whenever the farmer's market starts up, my family has a field day. :D We love it. I would still prefer to grow my own produce though, which is the latest family project. When I ate meat, we would always buy local meat.
