Farmer’s Market Newbie

July19

Our local Farmer’s Market is on Thursday afternoon. So this Thursday I decided to tag along with Chris while she went. I must admit that I think I have only been to one or two farmer’s markets before in my life as I’m more of the “city boy”. I thought it would be interesting to see what kind of little thing it was. But I was pleasantly surprised. It was quite an affair, much bigger than I thought it would have been. There were lots of stands selling all sorts of stuff from fruits, veggies and meat to home made soap and bonzai trees. I couldn’t believe it.

I was also very impressed with some of the vendors/farmers that were there when Chris told me their stories, so I’ll have to see if we can do something like a “featured farmer” every week to spread some of their stories and successful actions.

And I don’t really have to say it, but the food we have gotten from the farmer’s market has all been excellent. So I heartily recommend checking out your local market, not only for the food, but to meet some of the people and hear their stories.

“Farmer’s Market Newbie”

    We have a farmer’s market right down the road! It is pretty small, so next week I will be venturing to another one that’s a bit farther away.

    I have to say, we got strawberries from the farmer’s market and “regular” grocery strawberries just haven’t been the same since. The farmer’s market berries were riper, fresher, and take much, MUCH longer to spoil. (We actually didn’t find out how long they take, because we ate them all!)
