There is just something special about visiting a local farmers market. Not only are you meeting your local farmers, bakers, butchers, etc., but your family will be purchasing/eating the freshest variety of foods available. And even though the weather is cooling, there are many Cincinnati & Dayton farmers markets open during the winter months.
