Although many farmers’ markets are open all year round, springtime is when they really come to life. It’s the season we start seeing more fresh produce, flowers, eggs, and more. Farmers markets are great opportunities for you to chat with local farmers about what is grown locally and learn about nutrition benefits. A lot of food can be sourced locally and that’s something to be proud of. Check out our guide for Farmers’ Markets in the area and surrounding counties here.
Farmers Markets are great for picking up a variety of locally made goods. If you’re looking to pick up a batch of seasonal produce weekly, a CSA might be a better fit.
