Fresh fruit in season, gorgeous flowers, and original handmade crafts all can be found at your local farmers market. There are a few different ways you can find a great market near you:
- Simply type the name of your town plus the words "farmers market" into your favorite search engine. Usually, local results will pop up.
- Search Yelp.com, a user-submitted review site, for local markets in your area. This is a great way to uncover businesses that you weren't previously aware of, and you'll also be able to read honest reviews from people who have actually visited.
- Local Harvest makes it easy to find farmer's markets geographically; just type in your zip code.
- One of the the best sites I've found to do this for all fifty states is the Farmer's Market Listed by State site put out by the USDA. Just click on your state, and you should be able to find at least one farmer market in your area. All farmers markets are listed in alphabetical order.
