Farmers markets are back in season

Farmers markets are back in season


The asparagus is asking for you. The beets are betting you'll return. The kohlrabi is calling your name.

The farmers market season is upon us, and the springtime veggies are ripe and ready. But with COVID-19 still in the air, will the crowds be as willing?

A few farmers markets have thrown in the dirt-stained towel this year, but most are back or will be opening soon. The stalls will eventually be filled with strawberries and watermelons, green beans and tomatoes, okra and peppers and squash.

They're the place to go to get a loaf of artisanal bread, a jar of homemade jam or a scented candle. You can pick up a pound of local cheese and a cup of local honey, listen to some music and maybe grab a snack at a food truck.

Farmers markets are more than just markets — they are a social event. And the produce is as fresh as it can be.

Don't forget: Masks and social distancing are still required at most farmers markets.

Our farmers market list is as complete as we can make it. If you know of a market that is not included, please email the information to Daniel Neman or call 314-340-8133.
