Farmer's Market

I'm thankful for the Farmer's Market.

When we first moved to our new home, one of the very first things I wanted to check out was the local farmer's market.  It was love at first sight.  I enjoyed it so much and am really sad that it doesn't continue all year round.

For some reason or another, the one here isn't held at a park or a specific place designated for just the market.  Instead it's held within a parking lot that is blocked off during the time the market is open.  The parking lot is aptly named The Parkway.   The creativity is really quite astonishing.  ; )

The first time I usually go to a farmer's market, I like to slowly cruise along, checking out each vendor.  Seeing what they are selling, for how much, if it's organic, what the quality of it looks like.  Then, I turn around and go back to the vendors that sold the quality of food at a price I liked and purchase some yummy veggies.

I load up my big yellow bag (I really want to invest in one of those scrapbooking boxes on wheels from Costco.) and head home to enjoy my purchases.

This was just one of my visits.

I know it doesn't look like much, but we're still working on being thankful for all manner of vegetables in our house.  Besides there are only two of us.  I, also, bought green peppers, green beans, carrots, our Halloween pumpkin and my mommy got me some pretty flowers when she came to visit.  And you can't forget about Kettle Corn!

I'm thankful for the Farmer's Market because I love getting healthy, delicious, and organic foods from local farmers.   It's nice to know I'm helping out my community by shopping at this yearly market.

I'm thankful that there are three Farmer's Markets in our area and that most of the vendors are usually at all of them.  So if I miss one, I can try another.

Do you have a farmer's market you go to?
