It's National Farmer's Market Week
CREATED Aug. 4, 2013
Omaha, NE - It's the perfect time of year to chow down on some sweet corn or fresh green beans, all plucked straight from Nebraska soil.
It's national farmer's market week, and Nebraska's department of agriculture is encouraging residents to buy locally grown produce. Local vendors say supporting farmer's markets help boost the local economy.
"They want to support locally as opposed to anything that shipped in, they know it is healthier for them," says Nelson's produce employee Jan Nelson.
National farmer's market week runs through August 10th.
