Farmers market Committee Chairman Eric Denk says the weekly event gives  people new experiences when buying locally grown produce

"Increasingly I hear of people who express interest in where their food comes from.  And here you can buy food from the person who grew it.  And you can talk to that person about their farming practices and you can feel good about what you eat," said Eric Denk,Chair of the Farmer's Market Committee in Binghamton.
