Seasonal markets, filled with a diversity of fresh, locally produced and wild foods, are a wonderful reflection of local culture. The benefits of buying from markets at home and while traveling are numerous. Not only is it good for your health and the local economy, you're helping the growers support their lifestyle, send their kids to school, and put food on their own tables.
