PA Living: Locally Grown Fruits and Veggies
We're all about locally owned farms and markets. That's why we're so excited to see the rise of more and more local farmers' markets in our area! And we're even more thrilled to see the rise of local businesses that are dedicated to providing fruits and veggies at those markets.
It's a win-win situation for everyone—not just because you get to enjoy delicious, fresh food, but also because it supports local business owners who are passionate about their craft.
As a member of the Northcentral PA community, we know how important it is to support our small businesses, local events and charities. In this month's PA Living blog, we want to share local farms and markets. Hope you like it!
