Fun at the Farmers Market

I love the calm and relaxation of the farmers market in the morning. All of the beautiful products handmade and/or grown by the people in my community. This is the perfect time of year to start buying local, as produce is becoming available. I know it may seem easier to head to the grocery store but, there are so many reasons that you should try the farmers market. They are a fun way to support your community and see where your food comes from. Plus there is nothing better than truly fresh food and to purchase  a product from a seller who is proud of the hard work knowing that your money is going right back them.

Some of my favorite outings have been to the market. My kids get to pick out what fruit or vegetable they would like to try that week. We usually sample pastries or street tacos and check out the “ugly” produce for a discount. If you haven’t already done so, check out your local Farmers Market!

Reasons to check it out: 

  • Support the local community
  • Truly fresh food (more nutritious too!)
  • Fun experience and social outing
  • See where food comes from
  • Protect the environment and preserve fuel
  • Organic and non GMO

Please check out a farmers market this season! If you do, we would love to see pictures and hear about what fun foods you may have found. If you ever find yourself in SoCal, check out the farmers market in Oceanside, CA.  It is my favorite!

  1. I love going to the Farmers Market. Buying fresh produce grown by local farmers is one of my simple joys in life. I also enjoy trying the foods they sometimes have available, especially if someone from an Amish community shows up (they have the best food, in my opinion and hubby simply adores any sweet treat they make).

  2. The sweet treats are one of my favorites too! The market close to my house has little homemade powdered donuts. It’s the perfect food to share while exploring the shops.
