Fall brings last chance to shop local farmers’ markets

<p>With misinformation about food safety abundant on social media, a new Texas AgriLife Extension initiative will link food production and consumer needs.</p>

As autumn leaves begin to take on brilliant colors, it’s time to say goodbye to our local farmer’s markets—time to trade in the bright oranges, the deep purples, the rich greens and reds of locally grown produce for the myriad colors soon to grace the trees. Folks interested in local, fresh produce might want to take advantage of the last few days of the season to shop their local farmer’s market and pick up the last haul of blueberries, strawberries, greens and late-season vegetables. Make sure you grab some okra and squash. And look for unique crafts that will add seasonal color to your home décor. You can split peas and shuck corn on your front porch while watching the trees shuck their leaves.  Here are some late-season offering at the Denton, Texas, Farmers’ Market.
