Are you looking to buy local fruits and vegetables this spring and summer?

There are many great things about fresh local fruits and vegetables. There is a pride that comes with buying local, and for some reason, the food always tastes better.

Since spring is here, we wanted to take some time to share where the local farmer’s markets are, when they will be open, and how to get there. In the Novi, Northville, and South Lyon area, we are very fortunate to have three local farmer's markets.
