Starting with the Plymouth Outdoor Farmers’ Market at the Senior Center on Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. challenge yourself (and your family and friends) to eat fresh, locally grown foods within 100 miles of your home. Eating locally grown food tastes and looks better because the time from field to plate is greatly reduced. Buying locally grown food keeps money in your community and supports local families. Local food preserves open space: farmland is a patchwork of fields, meadows, woods, and ponds, which provides habitat for many different species. Most importantly, it is good nutrition for your health. Have fun on your local foods adventure!
100-Mile Food Challenge Pledge form (this form can be returned to the Local Foods Plymouth table at the farmers market or at the Farm to Desk pick-up on Fridays at the D & M building from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
