Oroville, Calif.—The best way to support your agriculture is to stop by a local Farmers Market.
The Farmers Market in Oroville at Union Square Market will be opening Saturday morning.
This Farmers Market is unique because it focuses on sustainability.
There will be education offered about permaculture and how to create sustainability when gardening.
There will also be gardening demonstrations offered at the Market.
Famers Market organizer, Matthew Trumm explained how the farmers build a relationship with local restaurants and how that can become beneficial for the environment.
Matthew Trumm said, “By composting these vegetable scraps from the restaurants here downtown they develop relationships with the restaurants. They become willing to buy local foods, which subsidies local farmers. So we're created an Oroville restaurant farmer network and bring more income for them and more food to the restaurants.”
The Market will feature locally harvested eggs, honey, and dried fruit.
The Market will be open from 7:30 a.m. to noon Saturday.
