Oregon Coast Farmers Markets - Fresh As Fresh Can Be

For a relaxing Sunday outing, consider visiting the Oregon Coast Farmers Markets. These happenings are really enjoyable and you can pick up some pretty awesome stuff there, from flowers to crafts to fresh fruits and vegetables. Farmers Markets along the Oregon Coast have been weekly events for years and there are large crowds walking the streets in search of treasures and fresh produce each weekend.

At the markets you have the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the local growers and farmers in the particular area you're visiting. It's pretty cool when you can actually talk to these vendors and find out a little about their lives and why they do what they do.

If you're the chef for your family or the chef for a fancy restaurant, you'll discover fresh, organically-grown fruits and vegetables that are pesticide-free and oh-so yummy for your tummy. The back end of trucks, folding tables and tents are all at your disposal, touting some of the best foods you will get.

Along with your purchase, the owners are often glad to offer some of their best ways to prepare your foods and some tasty recipes to use them in. The freshest seafood  and grass-fed, antibiotic-free chicken, beef, pork and lamb is also a staple of the Oregon Coast Farmers Markets.

You're sure to find some unique and homey things to adorn your home with and make it a place where guests really enjoy coming to visit, if not just to see what wonderful things you've found next. 

The Oregon Coast Farmers Markets are a wonderful place to spend a quiet afternoon. Grab a cup of fresh coffee, take the hand of the one you love and enjoy perusing all the incredible and tasty things you'll find at one of the local farmers' markets. Have a terrific time and maybe I'll see you there. ;)
