Top Farmers Markets

Today we headed down to the local Farmers Market and picked up lots of great veggies for a great price. We picked up some local pears,carrots, lettuce and apples for a fraction of the price that we would have paid at the grocery store.

The thing about Farmers Markets is that you support local farmers, the produce you get alot of the time is organic and the prices on the local stuff is usually better.

Yesterday I was reading a article in Mens Health that referenced the top Farmers Markets in the states.

Here in Halifax we have a great Farmers Market that is the longest running Farmers Market in North America.

The Halifax Farmers market was Founded in 1750, The Halifax Farmers’ Market Cooperative is the oldest continuously running farmers’ market in North America. The first market vendors were Acadian – the original European immigrants to the land. Currently, the market has over 200 vendors selling some of Nova Scotia’s best local products including fresh produce, maple products, crafts, flowers, cheeses, meats, baked goods, coffee and so much more!
