Let's face it, farmers markets are great.  They are the perfect place to find local produce as well as homemade items and more.  Who doesn't love a fresh grown fruit or vegetables, or homemade jams, jellies, breads, etc.  Our area has some great growers.  Since Summer is almost here, so are the farmers markets in the area.
