A Great Source of Gardening Wisdom: The Local Farmers' Markets in Chatham and Summit, New Jersey

One of my favorite things about the June-November time period is the joy of shopping at our local farmers' markets. During these six months, I stop buying all fruits and vegetables from the grocery store. While the environmental and health benefits of buying locally and organically are sufficient reasons to shop at the farmers' markets, my number one reason is that the food tastes better. Further, shopping at the farmers' markets supports our local farmers, who--if you get to know them personally--will share with you some of their hard earned gardening wisdom. Chatham is open on Saturday mornings and Summit is open on Sunday mornings. For more details, see below:
