Farmers' Markets

Fill Your Basket at a Farmers’ Market

Bright and colorful signs advertise the “freshest corn ever,” apples that bite back, and brilliantly hued pumpkins of a thousand shapes and sizes. This is the story of roadside stands and farmers’ markets. So when you are on the road, keep your eyes peeled—you might come across a pile of heirloom tomatoes stacked high and priced to sell on the honor system, or boxes of “Fresh Eggs” waiting to become tomorrow’s breakfast.
