What’s better on a hot summer day than an ice-cold slice of watermelon? Aug. 3 is National Watermelon Day, so head to your nearest farmer’s market and pick up a few of America’s favorite summertime fruit –which holds true to its name at 92% water. For the freshest selections at a farmer’s market, go early because the best produce goes first. Looking for the best deals? Then go late when the produce is usually discounted. So, grab some extra shopping bags and a wheeled cart for that enormous watermelon, and check out these farmer’s markets guides for your area:
Farmers markets can change location or hours depending on factors such as weather, so make sure to double check all of the details before you grab your grocery bags. While watermelon can be a bit messy, it does lend itself to some creative selfies. Snap a photo of your post-watermelon, wipe-down, and share on social media using #NationalWatermelonDay!
