My local outdoor farmer's market opened up last weekend, and I was so excited! I didn't actually get there because I was busy helping with a 5k and a lovely Mother's Day brunch, but you better believe I'll be there next week browsing my favorite goodies and drinking a fresh, organic, local juice. I eat local because the food is fresh. The summer produce is bright, vibrant colors, and there is totally a difference in taste. It's also a great way to support local farmers and build relationships with them. My dog also loves browsing the market for the free cheese samples!
