Shop with Hoosier Harvest Market
for the freshest food, grown and produced locally
by small farmers and businesses.
BUYING LOCAL MEANS BETTER FLAVOR AND NUTRITION
Commercial produce in retail stores is often a week old by the time it travels over 1,500 miles to get here, often requiring preservatives
Commercial produce is sometimes picked too early, making fruit, for example, hard and tasteless.
Locally grown food, on the other hand, is harvested at its peak in taste and nutrition for your immediate purchase.
BUYING LOCAL KEEPS THE MONEY IN OUR COMMUNITY
Commercial food profits go to a middleman or giant business outside our community and state, whereas buying local keeps the money cycling here in our community, helping it to grow and prosper.
Buying fresh produce from local producers helps preserve local farms and our precious rural community.
BUYING LOCAL ENSURES A SAFE AND SECURE FOOD
Getting to know our local food producers, their ethics, cultural heritage, and farming practices provides confidence in a safe supply of healthy food for our families.
Buying from local farmers helps renew rural, small-scale agriculture in our communities and helps guarantee a consistent flow of healthy food year round.
