There’s nothing like fresh produce, and in the Charlotte area there are more and more ways to get it. Farmers markets dot the city and surrounding area. Each farmer’s market has its own personality. Some focus on products that are truly local, and have rules that produce must have been grown within a certain radius. Others have an international flavor, selling products not easily found in stores. Some feature baked goods or other handmade products. Some offer cooking demonstrations. Kathleen Purvis of the Charlotte Observer compiled an excellent list of farmers markets, with an interactive map to help you get to them.
