I love farmers markets in spring, summer and fall. They’re great for picking up fresh tomatoes and greens, and for swapping recipes. Even better, I can usually find a cut flower vendor or a grower with a few extra seedlings for my garden.
These are the farmers markets in my corner of Georgia, west of Atlanta. Let me know your favorites!
