Collingswood Farmers' Market Opens May 2
I got an e-mail from Collingswood Farmer's Market this morning. They will be opening May 2 - only one month to go. It will be the market's 10th season. Collingswood Farmers' Market also has a page on Facebook now that you fan. If you post comments on the page or photos of the market on the page you could win a $5 gift certificate to the market.
If you've never made your way to the Collingswood Farmers' Market, you need to check it out. Fresh produce, local meats, cheeses and eggs, fresh bread from local bakeries, and my boys' favorite apple cider donuts are just a few of the things I come home with every week. Get there early - the market opens at 8am, and after the first few weeks by about 9am it's very crowded.
I cannot wait to see the first strawberries of the season in about 7 weeks. I miss strawberries. I know I can buy them at the grocery store all year round, but it's one of the foods that I choose to only eat locally and in season.
If you know of opening dates for other farmer's markets in the region, please leave them in the comments, and I'll be post them here. In fact, any event that you know of that would interest a locavore, I'd be happy to post about.
