Raise your hand if you are a fan of farmer's markets! These are the perfect locations to peruse local and seasonal produce to take home with you or to taste and enjoy during a picnic. Summer is a great season to do just this, and even though farmer's markets are open and available well into the fall season (and even winter!), we wanted to inspire you to pay a farmer's market a visit to enjoy the last days of the summer and its seasonal produce.
