Farmers markets are a great place to get fresh fruits and vegetables. Locally grown foods are fresher than foods that are transported from hundreds of miles away. Farmers markets are also a good way to teach kids about selecting produce. Take them along to pick out what they would like to eat. Letting kids take part in the shopping could also encourage them to try new foods.
