The Orleans Farmers' Market strives to Educate the public and local consumers
about locally grown produce and the farms of Barnstable County.
We have Education Events at the market highlighting local food,
what and when to plant and farms of the past that sustained the local population.
We support the Cape Cod Community
in their quest for the freshest and most nutritious food.
We bring consumers together with farmers and have food conversations.
We strive to educate the general public about the supply and demand
of the locally seasonal products.
This in turn creates a better understanding
about what is available and when.
By informing consumers about new products,
it encourages people to try new foods,
and increases greater food diversity and better health.
