Farmers Market Fresh Vegetables

Over the past few years, local farmers markets and community markets have been blossoming in every neighborhood. Catering by Design supports our local farmer’s markets, who offer a variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, honey and other local or handmade products.

Local farmer’s markets are a great place to meet local farmers, provide hands-on activities for children and create a sustainable local economy.
