Spring is here, and that means it’s time for farmers’ markets! We are fortunate to live in a place where you can get local food year-round. Farmers’ Markets and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are a great way to get delicious food, help local farms, and they teach your kids about where food comes from (hint: the answer is not the grocery store).
Here are the spots to get local food direct from the growers:
