It was another sunny and warm Saturday morning so we decided that today would be a great day to visit the Farmers’ Market in St. Catharines.

It is important that we remember that when we make purchases from local folks that we are helping people in our own communities. The more we can do to keep the velocity of money high in our own communities the better. Think of it as investing in your food supply – which you are.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not asking you to spend your money frivolously, just spend it locally on your needs. Preferably on goods grown or made here – not just sold here. The closer to 100% local content, the much more vibrant this community will be.

Wouldn’t you rather be investing in your neighbours and community than Chile, China or Mexico? I would and I do.
This is a great place to visit and we encourage you to visit and to buy locally. Keep cash moving locally – it benefits everyone.
