On Your Table: Farmers Markets in your area

Fresh is best and you can enjoy from local farms — find your local event


By Cathy Branciaroli, Food Correspondent, The Times

Despite the gloom of this past week or two, summer is arriving across the area and with it the lush produce offered at local farmers markets.

We welcome the fresh foods of the new season.  And we are not alone.  Across the country, the number of U.S. farmers markets has grown more than 75 percent since 2008, hitting nearly 8,400 this year.  At these markets, vendors sell produce, plants, herbs and cut flowers, an assortment of arts and crafts and baked goods.

strawberriesWho would not want to experience the freshest produce one can buy at the height of its seasonal ripeness?  To enjoy the best farmers market experience, arrive early, ask questions and experiment.

Farmers markets are open during the growing season, typically running through late fall,  although some remain open during the winter months on a less frequent basis.  Each market sets its own opening days and times.  Here is a day by day look at farmers markets operating during the 2015 season in Chester County.
