Top 10 Reasons I Love My Local Farmers Market

I love going to my local farmers market.  I used to think that going to a farmers market was an opportunity to get inexpensive food.  I’ve since learned that that’s not why you go to a farmer’s market.

The top 10 reasons why I love my local farmer’s market:

10. Fresh picked fruits and veggies
9. Supporting local farmers
8. Great local entertainment
7. My children beg me to go
6. Wine tasting
5. Local non-profits share information, last year I learned about our local Boys & Girls Club
4. We always run into friends and neighbors
3. My daughter found a delicious beef stew last week
2. My son begs me to buy him fresh baked bread
1. My picky-eater son begs me to buy him kale and he eats it!

Do you have a farmers market near you?  Why do you love it?

Happy Greening!
