At Chipmonk we enjoy nothing more than a sunny weekend morning speaking with locals about all-things-Keto at the farmer's market. It's also a great place to support the local community and give back to other local small businesses. Below, we’ve listed some of the farmers markets we’ve been known to frequent, as well as other favorites that we think you should check out.
