Why are farmer's markets so popular?
I love a good farmer's market. One of the best is the Westown farmer's market on Michigan St in Milwaukee. All the local produce, flowers, and crafts on Wednesday afternoons is pretty cool.
In recent years farmer's markets have become extremely popular. Most communities have market on Saturday morning or some weekday evening. Some cities even do a weekend day and a weekday.
