‘Tis The Season for Farmer’s Markets

What’s better than having fresh produce readily available to buy? Over the last few years, farmers markets have been popping up all over the city and in the outlying suburbs.  Now, we have more access to fresher, local produce.

The great thing about farmers markets is that you get to see what multiple farms have to offer and when you find a farm that has the produce and products you like, you don’t have to worry about traveling too far to get them. Make a day of it or an evening with the family and enjoy picking out that night’s dinner.
