Outdoor markets are a summertime favorite with kids. Parents can purchase freshly picked fruit, homemade pies, pastries, breads, fresh-cut flowers, vegetables, artisan cheeses, jams and salsas and an amazing array of artisan products can be found at many of the popular farmers' markets. Kids can enjoy music, face painting, storytelling, delicious treats and much more! The Farmers' Markets have just about everything you need for a day of fun in the sun. You can feed the entire family from the plethora of vendors selling food, and ample water, fresh squeezed lemonade and other refreshments are also available. Depending on the market and the time of year you might also find activities for the kids, including live music, storytellers, pony rides, mechanical bull rides and other fun.
