This blog post is not about food, BUT it seems like it could be about food. Local produce can not only change the quality of a meal, but can also directly impact the life of a local farmer as well as the community. Studies have shown that farmers markets can have a positive effect on the economy in its vicinity, with cities all over the country offering vouchers for women on the WIC program to be able to purchase their produce at local markets. However, this effect is still being studied, and the extent to which it affects the real estate market was not anticipated. Ok, it’s about food. And business.
