With fall fast approaching, Mother Earth provides us with an abundance of fruits and vegetables commonly eaten during colder weather. Some of the best ways to get the necessary nutrients to stay healthy over the next few months of what we call winter is to visit your local farmers market. You can buy fresh produce, flowers and other natural foods and plants.
Below is a list of Farmer's Markets in the North Central Florida area. Typically the foodstuffs are grown or produced within a 50 mile radius of Gainesville. Support your local growers and the local economy.
