If you've read my blog for awhile you know my Saturday morning routine. After several cups of coffee it's off to the Farmer's Market to pick up fresh fruit and veggies for the week. I love the atmosphere and everything is super picked that morning fresh.
Some pics from my Farmer's Market...
If the pictures didn't sell you on seeking out a Farmer's Market in your area. Here's a few more reasons you should:
Availability of produce not often found in supermarkets (many organic and some heirloom varieties)
Supporting Local Farmers
Smaller Carbon Footprint
Get some walking in
**Bonus: at most stalls you get to try before you buy. For a post-op Gastric Bypass patient this means: Free Lunch. I'm such a cheap date ;)
I go especially because unlike fruits and veggies from the supermarket the ones from the Farmer's Market actually TASTE. So worth getting up early on a Saturday for.
