Fun In The Summer Sun – Farmers Markets & Day Trips

Local Farmer Markets

Those who can’t do, teach. And those who can’t grow…GO to the farmers market! There are a lot of fun things to do in summer and farmers markets are definitely on the must do “bucket” list. Not only is it amazing to pick up fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs, but there are also a plethora of other fun events depending on which market you attend. Often times you will find specialty crafts, live music, fresh baked items and other homemade goods. Best of all, you are supporting your local community in their small businesses AND you can save yourself the trouble of harvesting your own foods if your green thumb is too rusty or broken this year.
