CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- The smell of fresh fruits and vegetables greets Tracey Rosenberg and her children for dinner most days.
"They absolutely love it," says Tracey.
She's picky about what's on her family's plate. Her first choice? The farmer's market.
"They actually eat fruits and vegetables because we come here," added Tracey.
And around this time of year they are easier to come by.
"We are starting to get a lot of local things in," said Norman Simpson the owner of Kings Drive Market.
"We are getting some tomatoes, cucumbers and squash in now, greens and collards."
The growing popularity of farmers' markets is evident from the people massed around with baskets slung over their arms.
In Charlotte farmers markets are now in full swing offering produce from local growers and merchants.
