Farmers market season is upon us, and despite the current health crisis, local farms and artisan food producers are still planting seeds and creating masterpieces, preparing for market season. (Just with extra precautions in place.)

Here's a list of some of the best farmers markets in Montco! The produce is fresher, it lasts longer, there’s less handling than in the big grocery stores since it’s going from the grower to the customer, and on top of it all … you’re supporting small local businesses.

We’ve launched the #extraordinarysmallbusinesschallenge because we want to SHOW UP for small businesses. For the small businesses that make each of our communities weird and wonderful. Because these small business owners are our friends, our neighbors, our family members. Because these small business owners have donated to the local sports team, and the annual fundraiser, and hosted events for those who needed it.
.
Because small businesses equal PEOPLE. Because small businesses equal RELATIONSHIPS.
.
Because WE. WILL. NOT. JUST SIT HERE while these small businesses struggle during this difficult time.
.
Here’s how it works:
.
Step 1: Post a picture or pictures of your favorite small business. In the caption, tell us what this small business means to you. Is it a relationship you’ve developed with your stylist? The friends you’ve made at the coffee shop? The restaurant owner who supported your daughter’s little league team? The gym owner who helped you lose all the weight? Tell us about the WHO behind that small business and what they mean to you.
.
Step 2: Tag away! Tag us, @extraordinarysmallbusiness, so we can feature you. Tag the business. Tag your friends. Make sure people KNOW this story.
.
Step 3: Nominate 5 friends to take the #extraordinarysmallbusinesschallenge
.
Step 4 (optional): Head to extraordinarysmallbusinesschallenge.com and tell us how you have supported a small business.
.
.
Let’s gooooooo! #extraordinarysmallbusinesschallenge

You might not be able to celebrate Memorial Weekend the way you normally would, but we say it's still a great time to fire up the grill for dinner and then enjoy some ice cream! To make it special, go all out with the toppings, make it yourself, or support a local spot that's offering takeout ice cream!

Spring is typically the busiest season for real estate. But if you had been planning to buy or sell a home in 2020, you're likely wondering how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting things. The good news is – you CAN still buy or sell right now. Things are just operating a little differently than usual.

To get tips from a true expert, we spoke with Jacqueline Hillgrube - Coldwell Banker Hearthside, Realtors.
