Market Season is about to begin! Visiting the Farmers Market is one of my favorite family activities. Aside form the fresh produce you get to talk to the people that grew the food, meet other local vendors and be part of a community. Find your local market below and #EatLocal this spring and summer!
Keep in mind that Farmers Markets are not like shopping at your grocery store. You will be shopping straight from the farmer that grew your items. Jessica shares her tips and tricks for getting the most out of your purchases and visit at Little Lake County in Tips for Shopping Your Farmers Market.
