The summer months are upon us and that means so many things: going to the pool, taking more walks, camping and other outdoor activities. But one of my favorite things that summer brings is farmer’s markets. All across Pittsburgh and its suburbs on any given day, you can find fresh produce at farmer’s markets.
By shopping farmer’s markets, you ensure that the produce that you consume is fresh and local. By purchasing goods from local vendors at these markets, you are helping build our communities; and who doesn’t love that? Most markets also offer additional goods like plants and flowers, fresh bread, jams and jellies, and desserts; there is something for everyone!
If you’re interested in visiting a farmer’s market today, here is a handy list of where you can find them and when they are in operation!
Be sure to check back all summer as we share recipes for food and drinks that you too can make from what you can find at these markets!
