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.
After two years of delays, cancellations and safety modifications, market season is back in full force this year (at least for now). Keep reading to find out where you can enjoy the freshest eats around.
