The season of fresh summer produce is here. Bushels of tomatoes, peppers, green beans, corn, peaches, watermelon and more are currently for sale in farmer’s markets across the county. Chances are there is a farmer’s market near you.
Advocates for Health in Action has pulled together a database of Wake County Farmer’s Markets. There are also mobile farmer’s markets and farm stands where local produce is plentiful. (We would love to share additional locations for local produce, so please let us know about your favorite source.)
