Farmer's Markets Winding Down

The local farmer's markets are starting to wind down now.

The Riverside Farmers Market in Roswell will run until October 25. It's definitely starying to wind down now, but several growers are still bringing some great late summer/early fall crops. I've been eating apples from Native American Farms in Dahlongah all week, and their squash and peppers look fantastic.

The Alpharetta Farmer's Market lists it's closing date as simply "October". Since this is my first run through with them, I suppose that means it'll close up when ever the growers stop showing up. Hanson Farms and Yang Farms both had great looking, locally grown produce when i was last there on the 6th.

It's time to start seriously looking at alternatives for produce, I think.
