As the weather warms up, farmers’ markets are popping up like spring crops. Offering everything from fresh produce, baked goods and prepared foods to flowers, honey and handmade items, these al fresco fairs are great places to shop in the sunshine (or rain) while supporting local businesses, growers and purveyors. Grab shades, a reusable tote bag and an umbrella (just in case) and visit a market near you!
