Delaware farmers markets are back, and we have a daily listing for you
It's that time of year where adults get to cut loose and be a kid in a produce-themed candy store.
Most people call these magical shops "farmers markets."
While there a handful to choose from this year, shoppers should remember that we're still in a pandemic, so social distancing and masks are required, per state guidelines.
Those protocols will be in place until further notice and they're intended to allow farmers to sell produce or items to you, according to the Delaware Department of Agriculture.
In other words, if you want to support your local farmers, please follow directions so you don't get anyone sick, including yourself.
