It seems like everywhere we travel to, one of our favorite things to do is visit the local markets. So when we heard about Mapleton and Clearview Farms, which was right along the way on our drive back from our Hot Springs, VA vacation, we had to check it out. This scenic little farmers’ market hosts farm-to-table lunches every weekend featuring many of their home-grown ingredients (just check out this drool-worthy sample menu). It just so happened they were featuring a whole hog BBQ on the day that we went and it was absolutely divine (the little guy loved it, too!). They encourage you to bring a blanket and have a picnic in their beautiful gardens, so we did just that. Afterward we picked up some goodies from their farm stand to take home!
