Local Farmers’ Markets
We are lucky to live in an area that offers so many amazing farmers’ markets. No need to limit yourself to just one! Branch out – visit a city over to meet new vendors and taste new treats. Take the whole family, a friend, or make it a date of it, and enjoy some amazing food, music, and company.
Visit local Farms
Wondering where your food comes from or just what goes in to running a farm? Take a day with your family or friends and visit some of these local farms and experience what farm life is like.
Pack a lunch and make a day of it, but don’t forget to save room for tasting on-farm treats!
