Last week I finally hit the Wednesday Farmers Market in Warrenton, for the first time this year! I must tell you it has really grown and evolved and brought to my attention the changes that all the farmers markets in our area have taken recently. No longer is it hit or miss, veggies and flowers, but now there are lots of choices for meats, baked goods, local wine, fresh cut flowers, jellies and jams, honey and, of course, farm fresh vegetables. Now you can find one close to you almost any day of the week. We are lucky to have many mid-week markets in the Piedmont. Look at the huge success of the new market in Forest Lakes, held on Tuesdays from 4-7, as featured in the Summer Issue of the Piedmont Virginian. There is also a great market in Gainesville, just off 66, on Thursday afternoons. Many markets have stepped up their appeal, by adding expert master gardeners to answer your questions. There are also Chef demonstrations to help inspire your fresh veggie experience. The best way to find your local market is to pick up a copy of , the resource guide from the PEC. They also have a great search engine on their website to help you locate the market nearest you. Support your local farmers markets and enjoy the bounties of the region.
