Another Place to Find that Perfect Gift

Here’s a place you might not have thought of to look for a holiday gift — your local farmers market.

Last weekend, I went to two farmers markets and found lots of fun items, including organic coffee, beeswax candles and tree ornaments, local honey in various flavors, maple syrup, all-natural bath salts and soaks, jewelry, handmade cards, Virginia wine, Amish pastries and preserves and creamy local cheeses.

While you’re there, you can pick up things like homemade wreaths, pumpkin pies, breads and cookies, winter squash, apples, and local dairy products and meats (think turkey) for a holiday feast.

You’ll even escape the crowds. So bundle up and head out!
