Eating on the Road? Don’t Forget Farmer’s Markets!

When these two baby boomers are visiting an exciting destination, one of the very first stopping places scheduled in our travel itinerary is always the local farmers’ market.

Here are just a few of the many reasons this has become a tradition in our travels:

The next time you are working on your own travel itinerary, make certain to do a quick Google search for the local farmers’ market. A lot of our best memories have been found in these local farmers’ markets, and we are confident that you will find the same to be true in your travels as well.

We are currently working on a trip to Santa Barbara, California and we’re looking forward to local pistachios, cheeses, specialty meats, and a wonderful bottle of a local cool-climate Syrah. YUM!
