Fresh is the word many of us like to hear when it comes to our nutrition. Questions of our food being organic or processed can be a frequent concern. However, no matter how you like your food, many of us can rely on our local farmers markets to supply locally-owned and grown produce year round. In Holt, that includes low-income customers. The Holt Farmers Market, which is owned and operated by the Delhi Downtown Development Authority (DDA), has been supplying local residents of every income the last couple of years.

MASON — Local farmers, residents and visitors flock to Maple Street every Saturday to attend the Mason Area Farmers Market. “To be frank, it is a street party. This is where everyone meets everybody and we get good stuff. We have an outlet for everybody who wants to get good, fresh vegetables and fruits and we all have fun.” -Elaine Ferris

Ferris was born and raised in Mason and helped start the farmers market in 2004. She said it has since gained popularity and loyal customers.
