Farmers Market 411
March 29, 2017
Now that spring is here, farmers markets are popping up all over the area. It’s so much fun to wake up on a Saturday morning, bring the dog and bring your family, and make a trip to your local produce stand. Produce from the farmers market is a fantastic way to support local businesses and buy a large amount of fruits and vegetables at an extremely affordable cost. When you’re getting your vegetables and fruits directly from the farmer themselves, you know that you’re getting great products that are fresh and free of hormones and GMOS. Although they might look extra delicious, make sure that after you purchase your farmers markets products you’re washing them thoroughly. If you aren’t 100% sure, you can also double check with the seller at the stand to ensure that the products are organic… but they should be labeled as such!
The fruits and veggies that you were eating during the winter months are slowly fading out of season, and now it’s time to revamp your dinner plate! No more squash and sweet potatoes, here’s our go-to graphic list of seasonal fruits and veggies that you should be able to find at any farmers market in your area in the spring time!
