Have you ever been to a local farmer’s market? If you haven’t, you may be in for a real treat. There is nothing quite like buying your food from the person who grew it and perhaps even picked it fresh for you. Our area has many markets that come alive this time of year. Shop any way you like! Take your list for specific produce, or make a day of it: stop to sample new items, talk with the vendors, and enjoy local entertainment. However you shop once you get there, farmers’ markets are a great place to try new things, get in your fruits and veggies, and support local farmers.
