What's in Season?
New Hampshire, the "Live Free or Die" state boasts over 75 farmer's markets throughout the state.
I love the idea of buying and eating locally. The fruits and vegetables are fresh and the fragrance of the flowers is delicious.
Buying locally at a New Hampshire Farmer's Market also supports our local farmers and helps grow the New Hampshire economy.
You can locate a farmer's market and discover what is in season at the NH Farmer's Market Association website.
