One of the cool things about this time of year is going to all of the Farmer's Markets in the area and picking up some great produce that is grown in the area.  It's also a great place to pick up some specially made jams, jellies, sauces, and more, and most of it is organic, there are gluten free options and more.

A Farmer's Market is also a great place to go if you don't have the time or inclination to grow your own.  I am absolutely one of those people.  I don't have a green thumb, but I am sure glad that there are others in the area who love to do that, and share with those of us who do not have a green thumb.

Thank you!

Here is a list of some of the area Farmer's Markets that you can hit up this season.  And luckily, not all of them are on Saturday mornings.  Some are during the week, and that works with a lot of people's schedules.
