Shop and Eat Local With These Bucks County Summer Markets
Get out those reusable totes and baskets because farmers market season is back!
In addition to being an important source of sustainable goods, farmers markets today are an invaluable community resource. Perhaps it’s the fresh air or complete lack of fluorescent lighting that does it; or maybe it’s the inspiring assortment of beautiful produce and handcrafted wares. Whatever the reason, there’s no denying that a trip to the farmers market is high up on the list of things we look forward to the most as the weather turns warmer.
So whether you’re looking to do your weekday shopping or just trying to think of an excuse to get outside on the weekend, we’re making it easy for you to eat fresh and shop local all summer long with these top picks for Bucks County families.
