Starting tomorrow, and then every Saturday until October, the Pasco Farmers Market kicks into gear. A nice variety of goodies await you on 4th Ave between Lewis and Columbia in Downtown Pasco. Of course there will be plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, but take a look at the video below and you'll find a whole lot more. Specialty cakes, loaves of bread and baked goods, fresh-off-the-farm flowers, hand-made soaps, specialty coffee beans and products, and treats, snacks, and food. The Pasco Farmer's Maret is a non-profit organization serving our communities. For reminders and updates on special additions or events, follow them on Facebook HERE.

Farmers' markets have been around for thousands of years overseas, and for several centuries here in the U.S. It's nice to see such a wholesome tradition continue even after the advent of the industrial age and grocery stores. Farmers markets really help small farms and businesses by giving them a venue to display and sell their goods. In many cases, fruits and vegetables are fresher and less expensive at farmers markets. Products usually get less handling, less transport, and little or no storage time.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
