Fall in love with local!

We guess it is technically the unofficial start to fall. There’s no reason to be sad summer is gone though. Hot chocolate, anything pumpkin or apple flavored and crisp nights are things we all have to look forward to. Fall is a perfect time to go local!

Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! We hope you are planning on doing something local to enjoy the last few hours before summer unofficially comes to a close. Did anyone have fun events in their community?

Go Local This Summer

With heat waves picking up over most of the country, how do you plan on staying cool this weekend? Trips to the local water park or nearby beach? Maybe you’re making it your mission to try every single ice cream shop in town (yum!). Whatever it is, we want to hear it!

Farmers Market

Happy official first day of summer! As the kids are wondering how to fill their summer days now that school is out, why not take them over to the local farmers market?

The ladies over at the Mumbling Mommy blog give plenty of reasons why you should take children to your local farmers market.

Whether it’s your children, your entire family or just yourself, do you have any plans for heading over to your community farmer’s market soon?

Tell us about your community’s farmers market! Are you a community bank who sponsors a market in your town? Let us know! We’re always encouraging people to bank local, dine local and shop local.

Each Friday this May, be on the lookout for Go Local’s Friday Farmers Market posts. We’re highlighting the great works community banks from across the country do with their local markets.

What’s Going on in YOUR Community?

With June quickly approaching, the majority of farmers markets are open or will be open this weekend throughout the US. Heading to one soon? Snap photos and comment here, tweet @ICBA or post on our Facebook page with all of the great things you are seeing in your communities! We’d love to hear about your local community banks in action.
