Local Farmers' Markets Return, Expand Hours for Spring



    Famous Showdowns Between Outlaws and the Law

    Warm weather's not the only thing that's back in the area! This week marks the reopening of one of the best parts of spring: farmers' markets.


    While many markets are opening up for the season, others have been open throughout the weekend but are now extending their hours.

    Due to a series of new innovations this year, including collaborations between fermenters and farmers for fans of wine, cider and kombucha, Fresh Farms says you can expect to see "better local food for everyone and more of it."

    Check out our list of all the Fresh Farms markets' opening dates:
