We are so lucky to live in a wonderful place! Thousands of people travel near and far to enjoy all that our community offers! While you are planning your summertime travels to different wonderful places, make sure to include stops at the local farmers markets. As you know from shopping at the DFM, a farmers market is the perfect place to find the “flavors” of the area, while supporting the local economy. A simple Google search of the area should be all that is necessary to find the nearest market! And when you return home, be sure to tell us all about your travels!
eat fresh, eat local, travel safe!
