One of my favorite activities in the late summer months is to visit one of the many local farmers markets. The fresh fruits and vegetables are just an added bonus to my dinner plate. The local home grown harvest is also another way to help better my eating habits. The food items vary with the progressing months throughout the summer season and the fall harvesting season. There seems to be something new each week that I visit.
