One of our favorite parts of the warmer seasons is the chance to get outside and enjoy the local farmers markets. Being The Natural State has its perks, and the array of fresh food at our fingertips is definitely one of them.

Last year, many of the metro’s farmers markets were delayed in opening amid coronavirus precautions, or simply sat out the season. And while many are back in action, things will still look a little different with safety regulations in place. But you know the drill by now. Wear your mask, keep your distance and you can still enjoy the freshest eats around.
