Summertime Farmers Markets

fresh fruit

Nothing is better than fresh, organic produce in season during the summer!  The taste of a home-grown tomato is better than an apple and fun to eat the same way.  Louisville is plentiful with many Farmers Markets located in just about every area of the city.  The festive atmosphere on a sunny day is like a fair.  You’re sure to run into a neighbor or two.  Since summer is growing to a close with schools starting, now is a great time to go if you haven’t already.

Here’s a list of some of the local ones in the area:

At Summit Executive Suites we like to offer healthy snacks for our clients in our kitchen.  Many are brought in by the clients themselves to share from their own gardens.  Summer is a great time to share bountiful harvests of veggies like tomatoes, zucchini & yellow squash.  Even if you don’t grow your own it’s a great conversation starter in the breakroom.  

Start a “Healthy Monday” at your office by bringing in fresh fruits and vegetables.  You’ll be surprised at how quickly it will catch on and everyone benefits.  It will keep you away from the vending machines…for a while anyway!
