Summer Time Farmer'S Markets!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

A great way to eat healthy, and enjoy good foods is to take advantage of the summer time farmer's markets! Check your local papers/ towns for times and dates where locals sell their fresh, organic, healthy goods! It's can be a fun event for the family; help support local farmers, and help your community; and if you have never tasted a locally grown tomato; your salads and taste buds have been missing out! A good opportunity to try something new, and cost many goods are cost effective!

    In our town we can sign up for a farm share.
We receive a box of veggies each week for about 25 weeks and it's so much fresher than the supermarket. Overall cost is about the same as shopping in a market, but the variety is much better.

    I ask my vendor at the local farmer market, when it's at the end of a particular vegetable season for a cute-rate price. Then, I donate it to a soup kitchen. That way everyone get to enjoy fresh vegetables.

    I love the many roadside vegetable markets that spring up in our community this time of year. You are so right, there is no taste like the taste of freshly grown fruits and vegetables!
