Farmers markets can offer the freshest of both familiar and less familiar types of seasonal produce.
If you love your fruits and veggies as much as we do, check out the USDA's farm-market finder, the Farmers Market Directory.
At farmersmarkets.usda.gov, there are lots of statistics and farmer-centeric details like the total number of registered farm markets and the states with the highest number. But most of us will just want to find farm markets -- say, one that will have Jersey Fresh tomatoes, peaches and local honey. The nationwide database lets you search for markets by ZIP code within a specified radius.
