It’s that time of year where eating local is getting easier and easier. Markets all around Virginia are eager to let consumers who are ready to sample the best produce, grass-fed meat, eggs, and agricultural bounty of Old Dominion. It’s Farmer’s Market Season!

A farmers’ market can provide a dose of educational value for your kiddos, with local farmers ready to explain about growing seasons, flower varieties, or “what’s that hardest thing to grow?”.  Anyway, if your family is around the Tri-Cities take the time to visit the fabulous farmer’s markets.
