Guide to LaGrange County Area Farmer’s Markets

Post Date: Jun 04, 2018

There are few things better than a summer morning at a farmer's market.

I just love looking at the colorful produce, the fresh baked goods and  handmade crafts unique to the area. Plus, it's so much fun to actually meet the people who grow the food!

Here's a list of some great summertime Farmer's Markets to check out the next time you're in LaGrange County, Indiana.
