Farm-fresh produce available at local farmers markets

By Patte Smith

Spring is here and summer is around the corner, so local farmers markets are getting in full swing. Many of the markets are around the Douglas County area, while others are fun to attend in Denver metro neighborhoods.

Farmers markets feature produce that is grown locally and often feature food that is grown both naturally and organically. The taste and quality of produce retains its nutritional content because the farmers pick fresh produce at the very peak of its flavor. Buying and supporting farmers markets ensures that these local farmers can continue their growing operations – a win, win for communities.
