The Farmers' Market


One of the best parts of this time of year is the food that is available.  Here are some examples from today.

Ah I miss the farmer's market! This reminds me of this article here: http://www.theatlantic.com/life/archive/2011/05/the-farmers-market-myth/238661/

@Joy - Thanks for pointing out the article.

@Xtina - If you call up to order, you can choose your monogram thread color. I used "Rose", but on my next one I will choose "Dark Pink" instead as it is, funnily, not as dark.

@Pete - It truly marks the beginning of the season.

@Main Line Sportsman - Sounds marvelous!

@Town and Country Prep - I love the early start. Have fun!

Thank you Muffy! I had no idea you could do that!

I'll tell you what, that farmer's market is a thing of beauty. I always feel good about spending a fortune at our local farmer's market and supporting our local, organic growers and farmers. How many things can you say you feel good about spending a fortune on?
I think I even did a post about Farmer's Markets at the beginning of my blog.

Good morning from Tokyo!

I loved your pictures. There is something so beautiful about produce when it's not pre-packaged. We have some very exotic markets around the city but by far my favorites continue to be those containing freshly pulled fruits and vegetables. Thank you for sharing!

Warmly,
