Wanna go to the Farmers Market? Yes, please!


I love Saturday mornings in the summer for many reasons. One of my favorite reasons is because I pile my kids into the minivan and head to the Kalamazoo Farmers Market. They have live music there and food trucks which are all beautiful gifts to my ears and nose (those grilled peppers and onions get me every time!). I love visiting the market for the whole experience. The fresh produce is also such a delight to my eyes - and the vendors are always so kind to my kids - offering samples and lots of smiles.


Did you know that many farmers markets have vendors who partner with WIC and offer special benefits? Your state might have this too! You can call your local WIC office to find out the details.
