Happy Farmers Market week!  :)  Yeah it's a thing.

An article posted from the Associated Press this past weekend says that Virginia ranks 9th place in the United States for farmers markets.  The rankings were released by the U.S. Department Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service.  The top 3 are California, New York and Michigan.  Virginia was 9th last year as well.

How often do you visit a local farmers market?  I try to go every weekend.  We have some great markets and farms here that you can visit to buy farm fresh items.

Saturday:  Downtown Fredericksburg at Hurkamp park or Spotsylvania farmers market at the Rt. 3/Gordon road commuter lot.

Sunday:  Stafford Hospital farmers market

Monday-Friday-  Hurkamp park always has some farm vendors in the morning. 

Wednesday-  Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center farmers market. (afternoon)

Thursday- Small farmers market at Mayfield off Dixon Street/Rt. 2 (evneing)

Also there's a produce stand at Ferry Road and 218 in Stafford.  It's open every day.

It's so easy to get locally grown, farm fresh produce.  

Some farms just off the top of my head......
