Our local farmers market sells the greenest, crispest, flavorful produce. These vegetables are less expensive and fresher then you could find in any grocery store. The fruit is just as delicious: crisp red apples, blueberries galorethe biggest juiciest SWEET grapefruits you could hope.
A few times a month there is live music and each week a cooking demonstration by some impressive culinary chefs with free sampling and a recipe card. The atmosphere is relaxing with plenty of sitting with umbrellas to enjoy the food, drink, people, and scenery. I have vended at this farmers market since the birth over a year ago. I have to remind myself that even though it is off-season this market has been good to me with repeat customers, a couple of wholesale accounts, and the most invaluable “word of mouth”.
Buying from your local farmers market benefits you with fresh fruits and vegetables, meeting interesting people, and supporting local farmers and crafters.
How many of you support your local farmers market?
P.S. A BIG thank you to my 14 year old son who took all but two of these AWESOME pictures for me!!
