San Antonio’s Many Farmers Markets
January 18, 2013
Let’s be honest, whether it’s fruits or vegetables there’s nothing better than eating delicious, fresh food. Fruits and veggies that are in season are not only full of vitamins and minerals, but they are usually cheaper than buying them at the local grocer.
Not only are you getting a deal on your fresh foods, but you’re helping the local economy. Most of the food at farmers markets are grown/produced by local farmers, so you’re helping your community in both the short and long term. Here are a few (one for Monday-Friday) farmers markets around San Antonio that you should visit:
