Farmers’ Market returns to the Hills

Posted on: November 19th, 2013 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

Farmers’ Markets are an incredible opportunity. You’re surrounded by the freshest local ingredients possible as well as all local businesses and purveyors. Fresh produce, artisanal and hand-made cheeses, specialty foods as well as flowers, jewelry and various forms of art are all located in the same space; It’s a food lover’s paradise. Often times, the business owners will be present at the Market, so it’s a great opportunity to get to know the hows and whys behind the business as well as to get to know the owners.
