Saturday Morning at Farmer's Market

Monday, August 1, 2011
Summer Saturday mornings are pretty predictable for me. Up early -- lots of watering, mowing and tending to the yard and gardens. Then errands.....banking, materials to be returned to the public library and then my last stop -- THE FARMER'S MARKET!!
I love supporting our local farmers and getting the oppportunity to buy produce that is local and as fresh as can be.
There is also fun non-food items to look at and purchase.
Old friends to visit with and catch up.
In every community I've lived in, whether in the country, small town or big city, the Farmer's Market has aways been a big deal for me.

August marks the begining of peak Farmer's Market season. All month I will be posting some great tidbits about Farmer's Markets and end the month with a trip to one of my favorites -- Lincoln, Nebraska's HayMarket. I look forward to YOU telling me about your Farmer's Market!

  1. I get carried away buying too much fruit and vegetables! They all look so good.

  1. We don't have a good farmer's market around here but I do have my wonderful produce market that is so cheap. You are lucky to have a good one. They are fun just to go and walk around for a while.

  1. Gail, I love the Farmer's Market, but unfortunately the one in our little town is no longer active. How I'd love to see it open up again!

    I love Farmer's Markets. We don't have many, but a lot of Farm Stands.

  1. You are so lucky. I have yet to figure out why we don't have a good Farmer's Market here in the middle of Illinois farm country. We have a few old guys with tables in front of the mall on Saturday mornings, but nothing like what we see in other towns. I would love to be able to add that to my weekend events!

  1. We have a wonderful farmers' market and I am so looking forward to the bounty of August! It's been so hot here, I haven't felt like visiting lately :(

    I love a farmer's market, and I was so excited when they started putting one together locally. They don't do it every week, and it's still very small, but I'm hopeful!

  1. Farmer's markets are the best, most fresh way to buy all sorts of goodies. I will look forward to more yumminess from you!
    YOu must have been there very early in the morning... I am looking at all the bags the market goers are carrying and they are not full. Mine would be so full I could barely carry them.
    Gail, please stop by StoneGable I have posted a very personal, very dear to my heart post about one of the best things that ever has happened in my life! Knowing your faith, I think you will be interest and share in my joy!

  1. A trip to the Farmer's Market was a tradition that my mother and I enjoyed thoroughly. These days, we try to grow a lot of fresh food on our own, now we even have laying chickens...it is wonderful. But, I will always love the variety and the unique finds at your local Farmer's Market. The BEST kind of shopping!
