Time to stock up on fresh veggies, fruits, and more bountiful delights in the region! It's definitely Farmer's Market season in the Yakima Valley and Central Washington.

Sure, you can travel over the Cascade Mountain pass and make a stop over to Pike Place Market and replenish your stash of fresh fruits, vegetables, flower, pepper jellies and more, but why spend over $5 a gallon for gas when you could just stick around the Central Washington region and hit up one of our unique and charming area farmer's markets?

    LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

    Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes.
