I know it is December, but that doesn't mean there isn't any great fresh local produce available. Northern California has a climate that allows us to produce crops year-round and we have farmers who work hard to grow and sell crops all year. Just like you and me, farmers have bills to pay all year and you can help them get through the cold months by coming out and buying their products. The Foothill Farmers' Market Association has two year-round farmers' markets in Auburn and Roseville that are chock-full of delicious fruits and vegetables. The Auburn market is Saturday mornings, 8-12 noon and the Roseville market is Tuesday mornings, 8:30 Am -1 PM. For more information, go to: http://www.foothillfarmersmarket.com/
Currently available at these markets are:
In addition to all this delicious fresh produce you will also find fresh baked bread, local milk, fresh local cheese, and a great selection of locally-made food products. With all this amazing food how can you not eat locally? Come on out to one of these local farmers' markets and enjoy the bounty of our region. If you do, you will not only eat well, but you will also be supporting our local farmers and making our local economy stronger. I hope to see you at the market!
