Today’s Topic: Farmers markets across the state hitting the peak of season

by | Jun 20, 2018

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

When the weather heats up, consumers will find more and more offerings at their local farmers market. In June and July, markets are getting into the peak of season, when you will find lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. There are four state-operated markets in North Carolina. They are in Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh. But there are also more than 200 local farmers markets across the state. By shopping local, you are not only supporting your local farmers, but you are also supporting your community.
