Farmers markets are great in so many ways! I recently discovered a few in my town and I loved them so much I decided to talk about why you should go out and explore these little markets in your area.
Discover/Try New Things
Local markets are one of the best spots to discover new companies, restaurants and products. They are also a great place to try new and unusual foods, or to find that perfect necklace for your best friend. While wandering around a local farmers market, I decided to try my first ever açaí bowl. Who knew fresh fruit on top of exotic mashed berries could be so delicious?!

Gain a Greater Sense of Community
While walking along the rows of tents you’ll run into old friends and have the opportunity to make new ones. At most farmers markets there are so many different types of people. You’re bound to get lost in conversation with other market-goers or the people advertising and selling their food/products/business. You’ll walk away happy to have met new people.
