Taste of Spring

Winter certainly isn’t everyone’s favorite season. I know it’s my least favorite—from the ice everywhere, all over everything, to the subzero temperatures hitting my face. Although Mother Nature has been kind to us this winter, we still have a couple more months to go before we see the sun. While we wait for spring—think warm thoughts and mark your calendars.

When winter does finally give way to spring, the Great Lakes Bay Region is full of life. Flowers start to bloom, birds begin to chirp, and fruits and veggies make a return.

One of the best places to experience all the life the region has to offer is your local farmers market. Each one has something different to offer, so it’s easy to find just what you’re looking for. From every kind of fruit and vegetable you can think of, to meat and dairy products, to homemade pies and jams, the farmers market has it all. Although opening day is still a few months away, there’s never a wrong time to start thinking about the delicious local products you will be using for your summer picnics and barbecues.

Be sure to save the dates to support your local farmer’s market:
