Vegetables are fresher, fruit is sweeter and shoppers are more friendly at the local Farmer's Market. My husband and I sell honey at three Farmer's markets. I enjoy the friendly vendors and the shoppers who alert to the importance of shopping locally. Please support your local Farmer's market. You will always know where the food comes from and when it was picked. Before you know it the season will be over and you'll have to suffer through the little pink rocks the grocery stores call tomatoes through the Autumn and Winter.
Please respond if you have questions about Farmer's markets or if you'd like to start sharing your garden produce, home-made craft, bakery items, homemade jams, jellys, salsas or nuts. Though market rules vary from community to community, they are basically the same. Count yourself fortunate if you live in a neighborhood that has a Year Round Farmer's Market. Fresh produce and products 365. You're the lucky ones. Yumm
