Buying at Area Farmer's Markets is More Healthy

The Farmer's Market season is underway throughout the region. Gayle Price with the Fredericksburg Farmer's Market says locally grow produce and fruit is more nutritious and tastes better. It's also not nearly as friendly to the environment to use fuel to ship produce from the west coast to Virginia and it's less fresh when it arrives. 
Many of the markets in this area are in line with prices at  grocery stores and , depending on the product, are often cheaper. Vendors sell everything from farm raised meat and honey to fresh vegetables and locally grown plants. 
The main market day at Hurkamp Park in Fredericksburg is on Saturdays, but some vendors are there from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. on weekdays too.
