Make grocery shopping fun at a farmers marketPosted August 2nd, 2017
Farmers markets are fun summer destinations for the whole family!
Fill up on your favorite summer treats!
We sure are lucky to live in California, where local farmers can 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 that can seem like chore. Heading out to a farmers market is a fun 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! 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 meeting other people. There’s often entertainment and locally-made crafts, too. Wherever you are, a farmers market is just a short ride away on a Foothill Transit bus. Find your favorite on this map. Grab some reusable bags and some protection from the sun, and you’re ready to go!
