It’s that time of year again. Local farmers and vendors will set up their tables and tents each Wednesday and Saturday for the Albert Lea Farmers Market.

Come on out and support our local farmers and take advantage of the opportunity for fresh produce and other goods.

If you’re taking part in any effort to eat healthy, here’s the chance to stock up your refrigerator and pantry with healthy options.

Afterall, who doesn’t like the taste of a fresh tomato versus one that has traveled 1,500 miles on a truck to arrive at the store?

The farmers market makes an extra effort for all residents to be able to partake by allowing the use of debit and credit cards, along with SNAP and EBT cards.

This year the market is even implementing a sampling program to give people the chance to test certain foods and get ideas on how to prepare them.

In addition it is a great opportunity to socialize with other community members.

We hear it all the time to buy local. Here’s your chance.
