Today’s Resolution: Endeavor To Market, To Market!

Local farmers’ markets are growing across the US. Many people are under the impression that these are much more costly than commercial markets and fruits and vegetables are the only products offered to consumers. Of course, neither of these is true. Plants, handmade crafts, local wines are just a few of the treasures one might find.

Some communities even have other events linked to their market attraction: car shows, auctions, festivals, etc. The local newspaper or the website for your city or town usually posts dates and locations for the nearest markets. Even if you do not plan on purchasing anything, farmers markets make for a nice outing where you can mingle with the community; you are likely to run into someone you know.
