Strawberry season is in full swing and anyone who likes fresh, local fruit can get out to a farm to pick berries or pick them up at the farm stand or farmers market. Local berries are sweeter and much more flavorful than berries that have been shipped in from other states. There is really no comparison. You simply can’t beat the taste of a berry grown on a nearby farm.
Farmers market season is here! Plan a shopping trip and get out to the farmers market to see the amazing food that area farmers are raising. Farmers markets are places where you can buy delicious, fresh food, talk to the farmer that raised it, and get to know your neighbors better. With over 11 farmers markets held weekly, Winston-Salem is a community growing around healthy, fresh food!
