Our Favorite Things – Seasonal Farmers Markets and Farm Stands

This year, we’ve put together Our Favorite Things: a short list of places near the Inn on Mill Creek B&B where you can find the stuff that brings joy in 2023. This month, we feature the fabulous farm stands and tailgate/farmers markets where you can grab a snack during your trip or an edible souvenir (local honey is always a winner), and you can often also find jewelry and craftwork from local artisans:
