Ahhh, the power of fresh produce!

My family can never get enough of it. In fact, almost every weekend my wife will join my mom and go to the Farmer's Market to buy farm-fresh veggies and sometimes flowers for our garden.  We love that it features foods grown or raised so locally.

Well now you don't need to wait for the weekend, because today marks the return of the Wednesday Farmer's Market in the Apache Mall parking lot in Rochester.

The market will be set up on the south end of the mall, near Macy's, which is the same location from last year.

It's fresh and local, and very community oriented. I would recommend stopping by to anyone who cannot wait to restock their supplies before the weekend because the service is excellent and everyone is so friendly.

The smaller, and much quieter version will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. through September 27.
