Everyone loves going to the farmers market. So why not host your own Corporate Farmers Market? The friendly faces, beautiful, seasonal farm fresh produce, and meeting the proud welcoming people that grew the food you will soon be eating. There is a connection- and intimacy to our food, to the earth, that can only be had at your local organic farmers market. Has your business considered hosting its own organic farmers market? If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area please contact us for more information. Here are few ideas for why your business should host a local organic farmers market for your employees:
It Shows Your Employees That You Value Health, Sustainability, and Community
When you arrange an organic corporate farmers market visit for your workforce it demonstrates to your staff that you value health, sustainability, and community. Most people already know that organically grown local food doesn’t contain synthetic pesticides or herbicides. And since those chemicals are not in your food they don’t get into your employees bodies which will make them much healthier!
Additionally, certified organic farms grow sustainably by not using synthetic fertilizers. Instead, organic farms rotate crops and use natural fertilizers such as compost. Organic farmers markets are also non-GMO. For more info on the difference between organic and non-gmo read this. Finally, farmers markets are all about community and will encourage your employees to share food stories, recipes, and relax in a friendly, fun, and healthy environment.
It’s a Fun Chance to Learn About Your Food
Whether it is learning about the health benefits of beets and the most fun ways to prepare them in your kitchen or finding out the secrets to choosing the right persimmon, your diverse staff are guaranteed to learn something new about their local California organic fruits and veggies Golden Gate Organics will provide for your own personal corporate farmers market.
But it’s not all about the fruits and veggies. All of the fresh and local farm items we bring to your farmers market have a story to be told too. Our caring and professional on-site staff are exceptionally knowledgeable about not only the food we bring but also the local organic farms where it is grown. We will answer questions about the farms your food comes from and share the stories of the farmers that grow your produce. It is a fun and welcoming experience for everyone.
A Corporate Farmers Market Is Way More Than a Farmer’s Market
While we may not be as big as the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in SF, we do customize each of our corporate farmers markets specifically to each of our clients. What makes our corporate farmers markets a success for you is that we personalize every experience to suit the needs of your business and employees. We bridge the gap of traditional farmers markets and people’s kitchens by educating your employees not only on the seasonality and origins of their food but also train them on how to prepare foods they might otherwise find intimidating. From massaging kale to shocking lettuce we have the easiest tips and recipes for choosing, storing, and cooking all the delicious and organic produce from your market.
It Demonstrates To Your Employees That You Care About Their Health
By providing a healthy and educational atmosphere at your corporate farmers market your employees will know that you care about their health and wellbeing. With time away from their desks employees can bond over a local organic apple. Perhaps even share childhood memories of traveling to a farm and what their favorite fruits and veggies are back home.
Providing healthy organic produce at your corporate farmers market nourishes the minds and bodies of your employees making them healthier, more alert, and more productive.
