I really enjoy going to the farmers' market. Sometimes I linger around a little longer than necessary with my son. We walk around and I point to and name all the fresh fruits and vegetables.
We are fortunate to have several farmers' markets within a few miles from our home. The Local Harvest website is a good resource for locating farmers' markets in your area. Just put in your zip code and they provide a list of markets near your location.

We always come home with a bit more than what was on the shopping list. But at these prices it's well worth it. Sometimes I feel like I've robbed the place when I leave. For what I pay for one tomato at the grocery store, I can usually get three or four for the same price at the farmers' market.
The chart below is a good resource for planning your shopping trips to know when is the best time of year to buy which fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Do you visit farmers' markets on a regular basis?
