Where to Find the Best Farmer’s Markets in the Area 

One of the staples of the summertime is local farmer’s markets, and the area around your The Isle apartment is full of them!

Sure, you can grab fresh produce and other tasty treats at the local supermarket, but there’s something even more satisfying about knowing that your food purchase is as fresh as can be, and went to support local farmers. That’s not to mention the fun that can be had from wandering around a farmer’s market! Being surrounded by other foodies can introduce you to new recipes and kitchen inspirations, while you get to mix and mingle with neighbors with similar interests and learn about the local farming community and food vendors.

Here are some great summer farmer’s markets to get your creative culinary juices flowing:


Pretzel Park Farmer’s Market: From 10 a.m.-2 p.m. every Saturday, head just a block from your The Isle apartment for Pretzel Park’s Farmer’s Market. If you want to stock up on some fresh foods but don’t feel like traveling far, this is a great option. And if you have four-legged friends at home, feel free to bring them along and treat them to an outing in the park’s dog run after you treat yourself to your purchases!

In addition to the plethora of food options, the market also features live performances, craft vendors and other entertainment weekly.
