In Focus: Straight from the farm

Published: Thursday, June 26, 2014 10:17 p.m. CST

I’ve always loved going to farmers markets. I like the idea of buying food straight from the farmer and learning all that went in to growing my favorite fruits and vegetables. 

It’s also a nice way to be a part of your community.

There often are fresh eggs, honey and –  of course – vegetables that were picked that day.

One of the farmers at a recent market told me his eggs were just gathered that morning. 

At the Geneva Green Market, I had a chance to chat with local farmer and beekeeper Larry Geddes.

He is passionate about getting food locally and supporting our area farmers.

After I was done photographing, he also helped me choose just the right honey to help me with my spring allergies.
