The Local Food Expo is a community-wide educational event that allows Marshfield area farmers and food producers to showcase their products to the community, and allows Marshfield area community members to speak with farmers, try products, and support Marshfield’s local food movement.
There are many nutritional, economic, environmental, and social benefits to buying local food:
- Local food tastes better! Local food travels less, so it’s generally more nutritious and saves gas and packaging.
- When residents buy products from local businesses, more of their dollar is spent in the local community, which is better for the Marshfield area economy.
- Being connected with others is another important aspect to good health and the Local Food Expo is a great way to make connections with farmers and other community members that can last the whole year.
