We’ve blogged a lot about how much we love farmers markets. Here in the northeast, our markets won’t open for about a month or so but the farm stands here have homegrown asparagus for sale. Local asparagus, fresh from the dirt, is the best treat you’ve ever had—don’t miss it, the season is short–and a bright green harbinger of all the good fresh food that’s to come! Today we want to give a farmer a chance to share his love for the farmers market. Ragan Sutterfield is a writer and sustainable farmer in Arkansas who has a great blog over at Plenty Magazine. His description of what he loves about farmers markets will get you rearing to go to your local market (hopefully you’re lucky enough to live somewhere where they’re open!)!
