Summer is fast approaching, and with summer comes the opening of many local Farmers Markets in our area. Some markets, like Findlay Market, are open year-round, while others open up during the warmer months.
I love that we have so many Farmers Markets in our area! I am hoping that this list will help you find a market in your neck of the woods, or perhaps you will want to check one out in a neighboring city or suburb?
And if you’ve never been to a Farmers Market, I hope that this list will inspire you to try something new and check one out! In my humble opinion, there is nothing better than farm fresh veggies, eggs, meats, baked goods, fresh cut flowers and so on. Eat fresh, eat local!
I tried to find as many market as I could, but if your local Farmers Market is not on our list, just contact me at Katie(at)Cards-by-Katie(dot)com and we’ll add you to the list!
Just a note, this list was put together in 2013. We are doing our best to update it as well as we can. Markets with a *** next to them have been updated in April of 2014 and should reflect the most current information that we have. If you want to be sure of times/hours before going to a market that is not starred please feel free to contact them!
