During the summertime in these parts, you don’t have to go far to shop local. In addition to being able to visit a wealth of farms right in our neighborhoods, local farmers’ markets are becoming a community gathering event, not only offering locally grown produce, but also showcasing locally made goods and local nonprofits as well. August 5-11 is National Farmers Market week, and why not celebrate by stopping by some of these locations?
