This morning was a great reminder why we enjoy visiting our local farmers’ markets, even when we don’t need produce. With so much traveling lately and a garden exploding with more produce than we can pass out to friends, neighbors and mailmen, we haven’t been going to the farmers’ market very often.
But early this morning we decided to head out because we missed visiting some of our favorite farmers and vendors. Best of all, it was another great learning experience because we saw so many wonderful new vegetables that we’ve never seen before.
Even at 8 am, the energy pulsed from the morning market, filled with hungry customers and busy produce stands. Just getting to see some familiar faces of the farmers and explore new varieties of fruits and vegetables (even though we’ve been hundreds of times, it’s amazing to seen new stuff popping up in the stalls) is worth the early morning trek.
What a great way to spend an early Saturday morning (and start our working weekend), especially during the peak of Summer!
