Online Listing of Farmers’ Markets June 20, 2011

I love my local farmers’ market and count on it for fresh produce during the summer months since I don’t have enough sun to grow a good vegetable garden any longer. In addition to fresh veggies, our markets also have honey, home-baked goods, locally grown plants, meat, and dairy.  It’s a great resource I wish we could have year-round.

Last week I got delicious lettuce and super sweet peas. Many of the cool-weather vegetables are ready now…onions, leeks, lettuce, peas and herbs. Delish!

Check out your local market and try something you’ve never had before. It’s a great way to support local business and eat more healthy with fresh, organic foods.

If you want to find a farmers’ market near you or while vacationing/traveling, check out this online listing at the U.S. Ag Dept.’s Web site where you can search by zip code or State:

Happy backyard gardening! Enjoy this summer by eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies.
