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

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!).

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!

I have been doing this for a few years, and the markets get better and better. Bought my first CSA ths year. It has been a wonderful learning experience, and my family and I are eating so much better.

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.
