Farmers Market Chic: Shop Local in Style

Some of the best parts of summer are the fantastic farmers markets that pop up in your neighborhood. Get local fresh produce and find homemade soaps, candles, cheese, baked goods and more. And bonus: kids love it too!


Just because it’s a super casual weekend activity doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style. Take a look at some of these celebrities who manage to always look great in a casual way. Honestly, I think some of these ladies look better here than on the red carpet.


Case in point: Jennifer Garner. She is always photographed with her kids at markets around LA. A little bit of powder, a coat of mascara and lip gloss (link no longer available), and she’s organically fantastic.


Leave it to Gwen Stefani to rock a chic summer look. Wearing her signature red lipstick (link no longer available), she shows off her fabulous, edgy style.


A longtime advocate for healthy eating, Michelle Obama takes a casual weekend look into high style territory with a teal cardi and patterned top.


Hillary Duff keeps it funky and fun at the market with black skinnies, cool glasses and red high top sneakers. Add a pop of color on the lips and she is farmers market funky chic.


Jessica Alba pulls it all together with big sunglasses and a scarf. We love her focus on a perfectly glossed lip (link no longer available). Trying to look anonymous has never looked so glamorous.


We know a big reason why these ladies look so good is because they are eating local and organic. Support your local farmers and find a market near you this weekend. And don’t forget the gloss and mascara ;)
