Toledo Farmers Market

Time for the Toledo Farmers' Market

I know it's hard to believe it is that time of year already. Market season will soon be upon us. If you have never been to the Toledo Farmers' Market you need to make sure you do that this market season. Our market season starts May 3rd and ends on October 25th. That would be 26 weeks of glorious produce and bakery. The Toledo Farmers' Market has some of the most fabulous baker's and growers in the area. So be sure to mark your calendars and make sure on Friday nights from 5-7 pm you are on the east side of the courthouse square enjoying the sights and sounds of a fabulous market.

You may ask why, why do I need to come to the Toledo Farmers' Market? Purchasing and enjoying fresh produce could give you double nutrients. Did you know that many vegetables start to lose their vibrancy and some of their nutrients during storage? Spinach loses half of its folic acid content after eight days when stored at 39degrees Fahrenheit. At the Toledo Farmers' Market you will find crisp, dark greens, bright radishes, tender asparagus tips and much more. The Toledo Farmers' Market is also a great place to find farm fresh free range chicken eggs, and the golden brown bakery that those eggs make. If you like to eat good food, the Toledo Farmers' Market is the place for you.

When you start with such good ingredients it is easier to cook because they need very little tweaking. A quick steaming here, a little roasting there, or a few minutes on the grill is often sufficient for a beautiful delicious feast.

By making your purchases at the local market you are supporting local, small farmers, and supporting your local economy. It is also an opportunity to go green and refresh your healthy eating habits.

See you at market on May 3rd.
