Even during this busy time of the year, one activity we love to work into our week (in between house showings, client meetings, and seemingly-endless school & sports activities for the kids) is a visit to the farmers market. There is just something about soaking in the sun and wandering the colorful aisles of fruits and vegetables. What is about it spring that makes us crave all things fresh and fragrant? Plus, many Charlotte spots have expanded their assortment to include baked goods, cheeses, meats and more. So, in addition to getting some grocery shopping checked off your list, farmers markets are a great way to shop local, sample something new, and support small businesses.
