Farmers Markets are a great way to get fresh local produce and here in Northwest Indiana there are plenty of them throughout the summer. Here’s my list of local Farmers Markets for you to enjoy and support locally-grown produce. For more information click on the town link to head to their website.
Although most farmer’s markets close in October for the season, there’s still plenty to do in the region during the fall. Check out this post: Fall Fun in Northwest Indiana, complete with pumpkin patch lists, County Line Orchard information and other free or cheap things do this fall.
