Earth Markets (

are part of a worldwide NETWORK of farmers' markets respecting theSLOW FOOD philosophy.

COMMUNITY-run farmer's markets that strengthen local food networks.

Quality food you can TRUST, bought directly from the producers.

Fair prices for both consumers and producers that foster LOCAL ECONOMIES.

Access to good, clean and fair food from the local area to reduce food miles andSHORTEN the FOOD CHAIN.

Consumers become COPRODUCERS, learning from producers and EDUCATIONALactivities.

They preserve the food culture of the local community and contribute to defendingBIODIVERSITY.

At an Earth market, you will only find producers selling their own products, on farms who make everyday commitments to preserving the earth, the soil, the air and water by their farming practices.

Refusing to use chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, steroids, hormones, and seeds which are genetically modifiedtakes much more effort on their part, and reduces the amount of product they will be able to sell, yet because of their devotion to these age old methods, the farm products are free of any harmful additives to the consumer's health, reducing the risk of cancer and other diseases, and which prevents future risks of diseases by not adding these harmful substances to the water or soil systems.
