Farmers Markets as Movements

sunrise on the farm Wilcowellness

Green America

Producers and consumers offer many reasons for buying and selling at Farmers Markets. The former often speak of increased returns while the latter emphasize the perceived health benefits of fresh, locally grown food. But many farmers Markets also profess a politics of everyday life, a set of practices that proponents believe can bring about social change outside of and despite unsupportive governments. In this way, farmers markets and other green economic venues represent a new strategy for social movements attempting to advance social and environmental goals.

Green is how we describe a world of social justice, healthy

Communities and ecological balance. Green is the color of hope.

-Green America, nonprofit manager of the Green Business Network

 

WE MUST INSIST THAT THE COMING “GREEN WAVE” LIFT ALL BOATS. THOSE LOW-INCOME

COMMUNITIES THAT WERE LOCKED OUT OF THE ECONOMY MUST BE LOCKED INTO THE CLEAN GREEN ECONOMY

-Van Jones, “Forty Years Gone: MLK’s Dream Today Would-Be Colored Green”

“If we place our beliefs in the magic of the Government, I fear we will be left hungry, Then What?” Grist

While doing research for this week’s Farmers Market Post, I came upon this very interesting book. The above exerts were pulled from the introduction and opening chapters. If you are truly interested in the Geographies of Justice and social transformation, I would recommend giving it a read.

What’s Crackin’ on National Egg Day?

Egg! In Honor of National Egg Day, Let’s Take a Look at the Health Benefits of Free – Range Hen Egg

Eat an egg! The old adage “you are what you eat” holds true when considering the nutritional value of eggs. Since the 1970s, studies have indicated that eggs from hens with access to pasture are better for you than eggs from birds kept in cages. Free-range hens that eat a healthy, natural diet pass on that benefit to you in the form of more nutritious eggs. 

In 2007, Mother Earth News magazine decided to test the nutritional value of pastured eggs from 14 different farms.

They were measured in a lab, then compared to the USDA standard conventional egg.

The study found that eggs from pastured hens were more nutritious than conventional eggs. They were higher in vitamin A, E and omega-3s, as well as lower in cholesterol and saturated fat. A published study by Cambridge University Press on pastured eggs produced similar results. Another study from the Institute of Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences showed that free-range eggs, laid by hens allowed to roam in the sun, contained three to four times the amount of vitamin D than the eggs of hens that were raised indoors.

Spend some time at your local farmers market and talk with your farmers about their hens and how they are raised. The happiest and healthiest are the ones that eat an organic diet (non-GMO) and are free to forage on plants (free of pesticides) and insects. You will be amazed at the difference in color and taste.
