How good is it to take a basket to the Farmers Market and fill it with fresh, organic, locally-grown food? Extra good, that's how. This is the old idea of a market to support local growers and feed the townsfolk, refreshed and updated to include the innovative alongside the traditional. Byron's produce includes both tropical and temperate fruit and vegetables, as well as meat, eggs, coffee and a whole range of gourmet items to enhance your cuisine. See below for a list of dates and locations of farmers' markets.
