21st Day, 21st Way

21.  Stake out a farmers market
It's the time of year that farmers markets are starting to pop up.  They are a great way to source local food and talk to the growers themselves.  While it would be ideal to plan your spring and summer only buying produce from the market, it's not always convenient, but the goal is to go as much as possible.  This challenge is to find a local farmers market and determine what they sell.  In a lot of markets you can find more than produce.  Local Harvest seems to be one of the most comprehensive lists of markets.  It also provides information on CSA's and locally grown meat.  Plug in your zip code and see what resources are available in your area.  Today is a good to start.  Most markets are only open on Saturday.
