Farmers’ Markets Open Conversations

Finally, its summertime! As the weather SLOWLY changed from winter to spring this year, and it felt like summer would never surface. Patience has paid off. The weather is getting nicer, the days are getting longer and everything is starting to green up. What does this mean? Your local farmers markets will be popping up in your communities. As consumers and farmers, we need to support these events. We as consumers benefit by receiving access to fresh, locally produced foods and goods by supporting your local economy and farmers.
