For me, the best part about Summer is fresh, home-grown tomatoes. It takes me back to eating them right off the vine in my grandmother's garden. If you live in the Texarkana area (or don't mind a short road trip) and want to get some of that hand-picked goodness, get ready for the Texarkana Farmers' Market!

The Texarkana, Texas Farmers’ Market kicks off a season of farm fresh fun Saturday, May 6 in downtown Texarkana. Attendees will be able to purchase seasonal produce and homegrown goods from the region’s best producers.
