I love the Logan Square and Federal Plaza Farmer's Markets. I hope both grow.

I love my local Farmer's Market. The food is fresher, cheaper, and yummier. And I love chatting with the farmers, and supporting my community.

We grow some and we are part of a very local CSA. We fill in at the farmers market.

If you're in Christchurch, you have to check out the Lyttelton Farmers market (cold in winter but worth it!).

I help at Kaiapoi Farmers Market which is starting up again on Saturday 4th October opposite the New World supermarket. We have very reasonable rates for stalls and we are there every saturday 9-12noon.

Cronton Garden Centre holds a market every 4 weeks and The Hollies at Little Stretton,Warrington we support well even though the goods are more expensive than the big hypermarkets.

Every Friday morning on my way to work I wander through the Oakland Farmer's Market...love the fresh veggies and fruit (especially the kiwi). What are your favorite things to get at your farmer's market? Kiwi, grapefruit, and almonds are delish at mine!

Love fresh produce and supporting local farmers. I'm even surprised by how better a peach tastes when purchased straight from the farmer rather than the supermarket.

Living in NYC makes this too easy. The year-round Union Square farmers' market is totally amazing, and my neighborhood in Queens has a smaller seasonal farmers' market just a few blocks from my home.
