Farmers market season is underway!
Wherever your travels take you over the next few months, you always can find an upcoming farmers market at minnesotagrown.com or view the weekly farmers markets at CentraCare.com. CentraCare works to improve the health of our communities by building a network and culture to sustain it. Our goal is to teach and expand people’s knowledge of cooking, create better awareness of where your food is from, keeping your foods “whole,” limiting processed foods and cultivating healthful habits for children. Visit a farmers market near you to support our local farmers and economy — as well as healthy eating habits!
