One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to go to farmer’s markets. I love to buy fresh, local produce to use in my cooking and baking and to support local farmers. (Plus you can usually find some blueberries!)
Farmer’s markets are really the link to fresh fruits and veggies where I live. There are farms nearby, but there are not any produce stands. It never occurred to me growing up that such a place could exist. I lived in Amish country after all. There are farm stands everywhere there.
Thursday evening, Pierre and I decided to head out to the Green Tree Farmer’s Market. It is located in Green Tree Park next to Parkway Center Mall off of 376. There are tons of signs so that you know exactly where it is located, as well as a police officer directing traffic.
The market starts at 4 p.m. and ends at 7 PM in May and June however, it is open until 7:30 in July through October. There are a variety of vendors, not limited to fresh produce. There was someone selling different types of cheeses, a pizza stand, an Italian Ice cart, the Pierogi Truck and many others.
I was very excited with all of the items that we purchased. We got blueberries, nectarines, 2 dozen eggs, 3 large cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, a zucchini, green beans, and tomatoes.
We will definitely return to the Green Tree Farmer’s Market in the future.
