I have always enjoyed picking up fresh picked food at local farmers markets. You can get it all at a grocery store, but there is just something about going to a Farmers Market, you know where it came from and you probably met one of the growers family members. Fresh tomatoes, Corn, Apples, Watermelons, and all kinds of garden vegetables are right there waiting for you to take home and consume.

It’s a seasonal thing here in Michigan, they are open year round down south, but nobody’s outside selling fresh vegetables here in the winter time. So we look forward to the warmer seasons when the farmers stock their markets with the fruits of their crops. The time is here to seek out your local farmers market, they are stocked and ready to sell.
