Eat Fresh and Celebrate National Farmers Market Week

This week is National Farmers Market Week which presents a great opportunity to get out and explore the many wonderful, local farmers markets we have in our area.  We’ve included our favorite metro Atlanta markets, but for a complete list of Georgia’s farmers markets including local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs you can go to http://www.localharvest.org/ 

If you are unfamiliar with CSAs, they are programs that have become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Basically, a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
