farmers marketShopping at farmers markets is the easiest way to eat locally. You know where the food comes from: After all, the grower is right there and you can ask them. More than one shopper, however, has come home with bags of produce that went uneaten.

A bit of planning can keep weekly shopping for produce at a farmers market fun and make cooking a snap all week long.

1.  Know Your Seasons
