I just discovered this great little farmer's market in Southside for anyone who lives in the area. It's located at Chesterfield Mall, it's year-round and it's open most of the week! Their hours are Tuesday-Friday 10am - 6pm, and Saturday summer hours are 8am-4pm.


Have you been to your local farmer's market this week?

  2. Love this list! I have to admit I am still kind of clueless as to how to menu plan using only seasonal items. I am working on it and find that shopping Farmer's Markets really helps, will have to check out this one.
