Farmers’ Markets Blooming Like Spring Love

I believe, because Wiki told me so, that it was Lord Tennyson who wrote “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.” He was probably right, but what’s even better than love in the spring? Farmers’ markets in the spring. Because really, does love have anything on just-picked spring asparagus? No. Well, maybe. Mmm….No.

Here is a handy list of 14 local farmers’ markets getting ready to bud out in April and May. Take your spring love or take your basket for one, and don’t forget the asparagus.
