Local Farmers Markets to Check Out this Summer
Farmers Markets are without a question a true trademark of the Delaware lifestyle, thanks to the abundance of farmland in Sussex County!
This summer, stimulate the local economy and buy your produce from Sussex County farmers at one of the many local farmers markets in the greater Millsboro area.
Why buy packaged and preserved produce when you could buy fresh, local produce down the street? If you buy from farmers markets, your food will be fresher, your family healthier—and you may even pick up a few delicious recipes along the way!
