<p>Shoppers have a lot of options for local produce at farmers markets</p>

More and more people across the country are getting behind the idea of locally grown food, whether it is from a community garden, their local farmer’s market, or the newest way to support local or Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).

On a Saturday morning in Denton, Texas, you can find Denton Creek Farms selling fresh produce grown only 20 miles away. Denton Creek Farm’s is run by Keith Copp, a third generation farmer with a 40-acre field growing produce such as tomatoes, cantaloupes, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, potatoes, beets, onions, green beans, peas, and broccoli just to name a few.

If you don’t have time to make it to the farmer’s market on Saturday, you can click the website: and sign up for their CSA and receive a box of fresh, locally grown produce delivered to your door once a week.
