Cowtown Farmers Market is kicking off Eat Local Week (July 16-22) with their Annual Summer Festival. Bring the kids and teach them the value of food: where it comes from and how important it is to support locally grown goods. Everything from artichokes, corn, melons and more at Cowtown Farmers Market is grown within 150 miles of the market.
There's plenty of kids events and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy! Don't miss all of the music, tasting booths and cooking demos! Fill up a bag with veggies, fruits and other treats and have the whole family help cook dinner that night - a fun, interactive way for kids to get involved with the family and understand the value of food!
If you can't make it this Saturday for the festival, keep in mind the market is open every Saturday year-round and on Wednesdays, June through November. Also, did you know? If you spend $100 at a farmers market, $62 goes back into the local economy!

When: 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, July 16
