The lazy, dog days of summer are starting to give way to the (marginally) cooler mornings of fall. It's time to start taking advantage of one of my favorite traditions: family trips to the local farmers' market. There's just nothing that quite compares to walking past stands stocked with colorful produce and local treasures and knowing that whatever you bring home is going to be fresh, seasonal, and bursting with flavor. It's also a great way to encourage healthy eating with your kids; I know mine loves to pick out fresh fruits and vegetables to bring home each week!
No matter where you live in the greater Houston area, there's a farmers' market nearby. We've rounded up some local markets for you, so all you have to do is get in the car, grab a coffee (too cliché?), and go.
