Summer Farmers’ Markets

If you don’t garden yourself, this is a great opportunity to see what is coming out of the ground and get the freshest vegetables and fruits available. This is a great opportunity to support your local economy as well as bring home some exciting fresh foods for your family.

Eating right doesn’t have to be boring, especially if you take advantage of a farmers’ market near you this summer. With a wide variety of produce to choose from, and a new selection to look at each week, a healthy diet can also mean being more adventurous than you would be at a supermarket.   At Summit Executive Suites we would love to hear about what “finds” you had at the markets and what delicious recipes you might have to share after a successful trip to the farmers’ market!
