It's that time for fresh veggies, fruits, and more. The Quincy Farmer's Market will be here sooner than you think.

The market will officially open on May 1st (Dogwood Weekend) at 8 am and run to 1 pm. As always, The Quincy Farmers Market will be located in Washington Park, Downtown Quincy, and run every Saturday May through October. I love taking the girls to the farmers market, there are fun-family activities to do, and the feel special picking out their fruits and veggies that they like.

The farmers market will accept credit/debit cards, Link, Snap and WIC. If you would like more information on forms of payment, make sure to stop by the farmer's market tent when attending the market. When you're done watching the parade head to Washington Park and enjoy supporting local farmers. You just never know what's going to be there, and that's what I love the most when visiting the farmer's market.

Quincy Medical Group will also be releasing a schedule of free family activities that will be available every Saturday during the market. In the past they have done bird houses, bubble making, planting and so much more. Follow the Quincy Farmer's Market on Facebook for updates throughout the season.

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.
