Looking for a fun and unique way to spend some time outside this summer with your family? Go check out one of your local farmer’s markets. San Antonio and Austin have many local farmers and vendors that set up in different places around the city every week, and visiting one of the many locations can be a great way for your kids to see some unbelievable fresh produce, meats, and other different kinds of local products. Farmer’s markets are usually fun, have healthy snack for your kids, and are a great way to teach your kids about how food is produced and distributed.
Have you ever seen a lemon the size of your head, or a squash shaped like a space ship? Well, that is just the kind of thing you will not see at the supermarket, but may come across at the farmer’s market. Take your children and the entire family to explore all of the goods that the farmers market has to offer. There will undoubtedly be something there that each and every one of you will enjoy.
With the hot summer months here in South Texas, there is lots of delicious produce in season. Now is the perfect time to get some fresh veggies to try out a new recipe, or just eat them fresh! This is a great way to experiment and try new foods with your family.
