Now that Spring is here, it’s a great time to shop at Farmers Markets! In many places you can get produce year-round at your local Farmers Market, so in that case, it’s always a great place to get fresh, local food. And many markets include meat, fish, dairy, eggs, freshly-baked pies, flowers and more. It’s the best way to ensure the farmer gets the profit, and you get the freshest possible food with the least amount of toxins. Find markets near you at LocalHarvest.com.
For many of us, when Spring arrives with its sunny days and warm air, the markets suddenly burst into full color with new fruits and vegetables, and even seedling plants at some stalls. This is when we can dust off our canvas bags and hit the markets with cash in hand, ready to explore the new season’s bounty. Check out what’s in season across the US here.
Spring marks the beginning of new growth, new tastes and new recipes to try. And Farmers Market Cookbook are the newest craze – check out these cookbooks based on what you find at markets and get ready for summer!
