There was a time when the closing of farmer's market stalls due to Winter's arrival meant you would soon be relegating yourself to the frozen vegetable section or the canned aisle at the supermarket in order to get out-of-season produce. Never fear, the times they are a changin'...and for the better.

Farmer's Market Online, brought to you by AOL, hopes to bring back visions of springtime's tender harvest and summer's red-ripe tomatoes. It is all just an order away in The Booths section of the marketplace. Currently, the fresh produce section is meager, but the idea is a great one if more farmers would participate. The specialty food items list is a long one: from nuts to coffee and berries to maple syrup. You even can buy your own farm and livestock at the Farm Supply page, if you wish. Exchange ideas with others in the Open Market. It's all at your fingertips.
