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.
Type your zip code in at this site for a list of Farmer's Markets (and CSA's) near you.
Today's haul... Onions, Garlic, Kale, Cucumbers, Summer Squash & Zucchini, Corn, Peaches, Plums, Nectarines, Apples, Pears, Watermelon, Grapes, Strawberries.
