Visit a Local Farmers' Market
Farmers' markets bring farm-fresh and organic produce to shoppers in urban and suburban areas, but there's often much more than fruits and vegetables sold there. You'll often find homemade bakery items and children's clothing, arts & crafts, and other attractive products. It's always fun to walk around and look at the merchandise. All items sold must be home grown or homemade.
Visiting a farmers' market is a great weekend experience for the entire family. The kids will learn that the produce really doesn't come from the supermarket and who knows ... they might enjoy eating vegetables after the visit.
