May is the time that hibernation ends, and the residents of the Northwoods wake up and welcome warmer temperatures. One of the many perks of living Up North is the abundance of Farmers Markets and Flea Markets. Here at Northwoods News, we have compiled a guide to help you navigate these local treasures.
According to the Farmers Market Coalition, going to a Farmers Market helps the community in many ways. Preserving rural livelihoods and farmland, stimulating local economies, increasing access to fresh, nutritious food, supporting healthy communities, and promoting sustainability are just some of the benefits Farmers Markets provide.
Northwoods Farmers Markets offer fresh produce, plants, honey, maple syrup, baked goods and more. If you are new to Farmers Markets, here are 10 tips to help you plan and get the most out of your next visit.
