I eat a little from there. I don't really live near any farmer's markets. The only one that's closest is at least 15 miles away. I usually to with my aunt in Huntington Beach to browse.

I do sometimes because duringing winter and late fall they arent here so My dad just goes to the local produce section to get things with in 100 miles

the apples he gets there are really sweet and hard (which is good!) :mrgreen: i like applesause XD

We sometimes do, but this year after reading this I actually asked if we can go more often ^^ they have nice, juicy, sweet and fresh fruit and other things there.

Our family is very organic! Also, food from the farmers market tends to be fresher and more cheap. They have HUGE tomatoes at the farmers market in our town! I swear they are like three pounds each! :shock: Anyway, we barely eat food from the Grocery Store :D

I love Organic Apples! :D
Our family is starting to buy more organic food, fruit and vegetables. The organic juice tastes very nice too.

I've been to the Farmer's Market once. It was a very good place, the food was nice a big and it looked good, very organic if I do say so myself. My friend, who was the person I went with, let me have a peach that they had bought from their. I must say that is was very delicous, unlike the regular grociery stores. I've been thinking of asking my mother to start getting food from there instead.

Today I have been to a farmer's market. The apples are indeed very good at those places. Only those men are often screaming very loud... :?

Yes, I gladly buy from my local Farmer's market... we buy various fruits and vegetables, such as squach, zucchini, strawberries, etc...
It does taste better, plus, adding on that it helps eliminate green house gasses, I believe that it's more worth-while.
