Food Safety at Farmer's Markets

Farmers marketFrom spring into fall, farmer's markets provide a variety of fresh produce as well as many other foods.  Most people think that food safety problems occur solely from eating tainted meat, dairy and processed food products.  Many people believe locally grown fruits and vegetables are completely safe.  Unfortunately, several cases of foodborne illness have been connected with fruits and vegetables.  For more information on food safety at farmer's markets and roadside stands, see the links below.
