Purchasing organic foods at a farmers market not only promotes environmental sustainability, but it’s also a seriously fun way to spend your morning. Not to mention, there’s just nothing like cooking with fresh ingredients from local farmers. Due to the growing popularity of green markets, it’s no surprise that many take into consideration the proximity of a home to one of these stands during their real estate search.
