Herbs are easily grown in containers and can make a great addition to any sunny small garden, balcony, patio, or front stoop. Container grown herbs are perfect for anyone with limited space or time to garden. The uses of herbs are many, and almost any herb can be grown in a container as long as the right growing conditions are provided. If your container garden site receives at least six or more hours of direct sun a day, your herbs should perform well.

Why Shop at Farmers Markets? Most produce at Farmers Markets is locally grown. Local produce travels a short distance, so it is usually picked at peak ripeness, giving the produce more flavor and more nutrients. Farmers Markets may carry fruit and vegetable varieties typically not available in grocery stores. Farmers Markets are also a place for community gathering and may offer entertainment. They are great for families to interact and neighbors to meet.  Tips for Shopping at Farmers Markets
