It's a matter of ....The Farmer's Market

It's that time of year......when folks begin to harvest wonderful fruits and vegetables from their gardens and orchards. It is also time to put food aside either in canned, frozen, or dehydrated forms.

As such, I wanted to list local Farmer's Markets that you may want to support to get those needed items that you may not have in your own garden. Besides the wonderful produce, many Farmer's markets also have wonderful baked goods, and crafts by talented artisan's. Make a plan to go very soon!
