Go to a farmer's market

Buy fresh fruits and veggies from a market like this for top quality goods.

Summer is right around the corner and this often means that you can visit local farmer’s markets. If you have never been to a farmer’s market, you may want to give it a try. These are great places to find fresh fruits and vegetables as well as homemade items too.

One of my favorite things to do is to visit farmer’s markets. Now keep in mind the prices are not always cheap, but the quality is great. I am very excited this year because the small town I live in is now hosting a weekly farmer’s market every Wednesday. This is a great thing for me because I love these things.

There are many reasons why people attend these small festivals. One of the main reasons is to purchase fresh vegetables and fruits. The booths at these markets tend to change their stock often and they offer whatever is in season. For example, when blueberry season begins, they will sell fresh blueberries. If you want to purchase a certain thing, be sure to stop in while that particular item is in season.

Another great item that I commonly buy from these markets is jam. I do not make my own jellies and jams but I prefer homemade ones. There is almost always someone selling homemade jellies and jams and they offer many varieties. You can also buy homemade cookies, pies, rolls and breads. If you have never been to a farmer’s market, look for one in your area. You never know what you will find, but there are always great products available.
