An Easy Guide to Farmers Markets
Farmers Markets can be a great way for you to live a more ‘green’ lifestyle. However, they can be super intimidating if you have never been to one. Whenever I travel, I try to stop in on at least one farmer’s market to get local, seasonal produce to snack on and share with the people I know. Here are a few of my tips for navigating the farmer’s market scene…
