Make grocery shopping fun at a farmers marketPosted August 7th, 2020
Farmers markets are fun summer destinations for the whole family!
Fill up on your favorite summer treats!
We’re grateful to live in California, where local farmers continue to grow just about every delicious food. And there’s something extra special about summer fruits and vegetables. You can buy them at your supermarket, but heading out to a farmers market is a fun, fresh-air alternative!
Farmers markets are lively, colorful places. The fruits and vegetables are laid out like candy in a candy shop. That’s good news if you’re trying to help your family make healthier choices and eating in more! What’s more, you can get to know the farmers. Ask them about how they grew your food. They can give you really helpful tips on how to prepare it.
You can enjoy your time at the farmers market, taking in the sights and sounds. Wherever you are, a farmers market is just a short ride away on a Foothill Transit bus. Find your favorite on this map. Grab your mask, some reusable bags, and some protection from the sun, and you’re ready to go!
If you haven’t been to a farmers market in a while, keep in mind that you may have to wait to enter if the market is limiting the number of visitors at one time. You’ll be expected to keep your distance and cover your face, just like at the grocery store.
