  1. Camile Cozier says:

    I will try a Farmer’s Market that I haven’t been to before.

  2. Michelle says:

    I am embarrassed to say that I do not go to the Farmer’s Market that often, as there are not that many in my area. Plus, the ones that in my area tend to be more “crafts” than produce. But I, too, am going to go to a different one this weekend and maybe I’ll find my new favorite Farmer’s Market!

  3. Mary Clark says:

    I live in a farming community where everyday is fresh food day. I shall celebrate by eating healthier and trying out new veggies… brussel sprouts.

  4. Sandi Larsen says:

    I will be sure to make it to the Penn Center Farmer’s market this Sunday!

  5. Jana Swan says:

    I love Farmer’s Markets! A great place to get fresh, wholesome food and help out the local farmers. They have a tough job. Support your local producers!!

  6. I visit two Farmers’ Markets twice a week for the wonderful produce which I eat and also feed to my beautiful waterfowl and related birds species. Santa Rosa Valley is lucky to have Underwoods and Simi Produce to supply us.

  7. I will celebrate by eating fresh local foods. I go to the farmer’s market at least once a week and will try to stop by the produce stand by Torrance Airport more often.

  8. Meenakshi says:

    There are 3 Farmers Markets we visit regularly in Houston. We also love Georgia’s Farm to Market on I-10 @ Dairy Ashford. It’s a “permanent” Farmers Market that sells all sorts of great stuff, including free range, vegetarian, cruelty free meats and eggs!

  9. I will only buy organic local produce
