Buying directly from the local farmers: an ecoresponsible act

To do this, buying produce directly from the farmer is the ideal solution. Indeed, you'll find farms that sell their produce directly throughout Nord–Pas-de-Calais. Whether it's to buy meat, fruit and vegetables, or dairy produce, direct farm sales have nothing but advantages.

First of all, this allows you to buy good local produce, some of which is organic. You are also sure of consuming seasonal fruit and vegetables, which is more respectful of the environment. It's also an act that allows you to support the region's farmers and market gardeners directly, and go out to meet them - a wonderful opportunity to discover new places. Lastly, direct farm sales can even allow you to make savings, because some producers sell certain products wholesale, such as meat and strawberries.
