Why buy at the CB farmer’s market? (from the PICoC
blog)
• obtain the freshest, most flavorful and nutritious produce possible,
• have an opportunity to talk to the people who grow your food,
• increase local employment while helping to keep money in the community,
• reduce consumption of fossil fuels and the resulting pollution from transportation,
• AND help to create and improve sustainable regional economics.

(I’m also hearing that local artists will be on hand to show/sell/discuss their artwork. Stay tuned for updates.)

Note to Area Businesses:
The Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market will be distributing flyers to their visitors offering “10% off with this flyer” for local businesses who wish to participate. This is a great way to draw traffic to your business or promote your service.
