Many of us associate the summer months with visits to a local farmers market.

It’s a great way to meet and support local farmers and stock up on fresh, locally grown produce as well as many other items. It can also be a fun, community event for the whole family to enjoy.

We don't have a farmers market in Mill Creek, but here are ten local markets you might want to visit in the coming months.
