Farm-fresh food is all well and good, but who has time to actually go to a farm and pick it themselves? Not me. For those who pine for a slightly more convenient farm-to-table experience, I give you this list of 56 farmers’ markets in our area, at which you can go hog wild over crates of fresh berries, greens, flowers, cheese and more.

Here, your guide to a farm-fresh summer.
