Making art with fresh ingredients.

When was the last time you were at your local farmer’s market?
I hope it was recently. A farmer’s market is the best way to support your local economy, whether it be buying local produce, baked goods, or even fresh local meats. I’ve gotten such great deals from the farmer’s market. I mean there are things about the produce, make sure that the produce you are getting is actually local. Look at the produce, look for stickers, and don’t be afraid to ask about the produce.
Ironically, I’ve found that a lot of the produce I’ve bought has lasted so much longer than what produce I’ve bought at the store. So it’s just another plus to going to the farmer’s market. 
So I would definitely recommended finding out where the closest farmer’s market is to you.
If you are in the Kansas City area, you need to check out the City Market. This place is amazing. What farmer’s markets you see on t.v. this is it. 
Happy Cooking.
