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.
