To Market, To Market!

A trip to the market promotes a healthy diet and a healthy relationship. Load up on veggies and lovin’ as you stroll through the outdoor aisles of fresh produce and artisanal coffee roasters at your local farmers’ market. There may be a flower vendor too, in which case you should treat yourselves to a bouquet. Then head home and turn your tasty treats into a romantic dinner for two.

Farmers’ markets are springing up everywhere, as people are getting hip to the benefits of locally grown food. But some markets have long and colorful histories, such as the Cambridge Farmers’ Market in Cambridge, Ont., which has been open since 1830, making it the third oldest market in Canada, or the Soulard Farmer’s Market in St. Louis, which opened in 1779, making it the oldest market west of the Mississippi.
