Fabulous Farm Markets

223

Why Shop Local? 

Farm markets occur most weekends during the spring, summer and fall months.  You’ll typically find raw honey, fresh flowers, free range meat, eggs, fresh veggies and fruits, arts/crafts, local wines and much more.  Farm markets are a great way to support your local economy.  Plus, you’re getting something much fresher than what you’d buy at your local grocer.  It’s also a great way to connect with people in your area, including the actual farmers and artisans.

Over the years, I’ve picked up some pretty awesome plants, local honey, pottery, olive oils, wine, local produce and much more.

How to Find a Good Farm Market

Although I live in an area that has many farm markets to choose from, don’t worry if you live in a  small town!  If you’re not sure where to find farm markets in your area, check out Local Harvest’s directory. You can put in your zip code at the top of the page and it will give you a list of farm markets in our area. PBS’s website also has a directory with more information.  Your town’s newspaper is also another great place to look for farm market locations and dates. Lastly, your local health food store and/or co-op should be able to provide you with information on where you can find a good farm market.
