I LOVE taking my kids to the farmer’s market. It is so much fun to just walk around, check out all the delicious produce, listen to music and chat with the local farmers. It’s such an easy way to supplement the produce we get from our CSA program and our little backyard garden. I’m thrilled that we have such great options available to us in the Tri-Cities!

This was one of our favorite ways to spend our Wednesday mornings last year. They are in a covered pavilion, which is fantastic for rainy days or days that are super hot. The vendors are wonderful and were always giving my boys a piece of fresh fruit to try, we never left empty-handed.
