A Few Of My Favorite Things: Seasonal Roots Online Farmer’s Market

Who doesn’t love farmers markets? I love getting the freshest ingredients, buying local, helping the agri-business community, and knowing that what I am eating was farmed sustainably. However, living in the city and juggling multiple jobs means a lot of the time I end up picking up some OK groceries at the Giant down the street. Ugh…

However! Seasonal Roots has helped change this! Seasonal Roots is a very unique farmers market. Seasonal Roots online farmers market began connecting Virginia families to local farmers in 2011 to help us all eat better and live better – and now they are delivering in the Chevy Chase, Bethesda, North Bethesda, Rockville, Potomac, and Silver Spring areas!

Seasonal Roots supports local family farmers and artisans who use sustainable practices that are less about short-term profit and more about preserving the land and the environment for future generations. The farmers they partner with grow the most flavorful, nutritious produce and humanely raise happy, healthy animals for meat, eggs, and dairy. Yum! :)

A few reasons why sustainable practices are so important:

The food is more nutritious!

It’s safer for the environment!

The animals are happier :)

The community is healthier!

Their farmers are able to pick at the peak of ripeness and then Seasonal Roots #Veggiefairies home-delivers your produce within a couple days of harvest -- #DirttoDoorstep! Seasonal Roots strives to empower their members to eat better and live better with more nutritious, flavorful food that’s good for us and good for the planet. How awesome is that?
