Play at the Market!

Support and encourage the work of farmers and artisans in your area by visiting your local farmers market! Enjoy the freshest fruits, veggies and flowers, herbs, jams and preserves, candies, pastries and breads, art, crafts and antiques, and all sorts of fun activities! Market vendors are the most friendly, helpful, good-spirited people on earth. If you don't know how to cook something, just ask. Go ahead, be daring and buy something you've never tried before...arugula anyone? Pluots perhaps?  :)
