Whether you're a seasoned shopper or someone who loathes the supermarket, shopping is definitely more fun in the sunlight with loved ones. Farmers markets provide a great experience, pairing the fresh air with hand-picked and handcrafted items that are both fun to look through and delicious to taste.
For many countries around the world, farmers markets are simply a normal part of daily life, with vendors and farmers constantly bringing their freshest offerings to street corners where regulars purchase recently harvested fruits and vegetables. As America is a country of immigrants, we have created our own type of market. Though they might only be held on a weekly basis, farmers markets are a lovely way to purchase your produce for the week or to try out a specialty item that was made with the care of a local.
