Farmers' markets

by - Thursday, May 20, 2010

As summer approaches, many local farmers' markets are just getting started for the season. I love farmer's markets for so many reasons, including the fact that you can find unique varieties of fruits and veggies and buy them directly from the farmer that grew them!

Tuesday I stopped by our year-round Tuesday market to pick up a few things. Even though I wasn't planning on buying strawberries, I just couldn't resist these- they're HUGE!

Check out Local Harvest to find a farmers' market near your home. If you live near me (Placer County, Ca) the Placer Grown website is a great resource for finding local fruits, veggies, nuts, flowers, meats, eggs, and more.

  1. I live by you (Placer County) and was wondering where your favorite places were to buy local produce.

  2. Hi Jessica! The local farmers' markets (I'm usually in Roseville) are decent (not like Davis, but still good). They are small but have some good stuff. In the off-season, Newcastle Produce in Newcastle and Blue Goose in Loomis are great too.
