Fruits and Vegetables from the Farmers Market Are the Best

June 25, 2011

One of the best things about Summer is fresh local fruits and vegetables.  I try to avoid buying these items during this time of year and instead opt for picking them up at the farmers market.

Every Tuesday and Friday various vendors set up a small farmers market on the round-about off of Kerry Forst Parkway.  Some of them buy their produce from other markets to resell.  I avoid these and opt for the people who grow what they sell.  My favorite is a family from Pelham, Georgia.  Their tomatoes, eggplant and squash have been great this year and I love visiting them.

On Saturdays we usually go to Thomasville, Georgia to run errands and grab lunch.  I love heading to Lewis Produce to stock up on peaches, tomatoes and whatever else is in season.  Their green tomatoes are great and the last batch of peaches I got were amazing! Until recently they were an open air market but I appreciate the addition of a/c especially when it is 95 degrees and humid.
