Foothills Direct Market Association is a group of growers that have joined together to promote direct marketing of farm produce animal products and plants.  The members of the association believe that on plant ripened fruits and vegetables provide the best value, highest quality, best flavor, and most nutritious produce for you, the consumer.  And the same can be said for the high quality and superior flavor of fresh and locally-raised animal products.

A side benefit is a pleasant recreational experience. Some growers provide picnic tables, rides on farm equipment to or through the fields, and are knowledgeable of local history, folklore, and interesting places to visit nearby.

Why Buy Locally Grown?

Consumers worldwide are rediscovering the benefits of buying locally grown food. It is fresher than anything in the supermarket and that means it is tastier and more nutritious. It is also good for the local economy--buying directly from family farmers helps them stay in business. Family farmers sell their products directly to consumers through various avenues, such as at roadside stands and farms markets.
