Sustainable Contra Costa Action Guide
Did you know . . . ?
Contra Costa County has 25 Certified FarmerŐs Markets, many of which sell fresh, local produce year-round.
Buying locally grown produce reduces the environmental impact of shipping produce over long distances and helps support small local farmers. At a farmerŐs market, you can get to know the people who grow the food you eat and find out more about how itŐs produced. This is a great way to ensure that your food is produced in a way that is healthy for you and the environment.
Shopping at independent businesses around Contra Costa County helps support your neighbors and is economically beneficial for the county as a whole.
