Top 5 Summer Farmers Markets

There’s so much to love about farmers markets. Shopping in the open air, über fresh produce, and most importantly, supporting and actually meeting the local growers, raisers, and makers of your purchases. From fruits and veggies to soaps and candles, each market offers unique goodies—with new surprises arriving every week. You’ll want to bring an extra reusable bag (or two, or three) for these shopping sprees.
