Live Real. Eat Real.

This Little Blogger Went To Market

My enthusiasm for our local farmer’s markets is pretty well known, but since this week’s Spin Cycle is “photo essays,” I thought I’d give you some visual representations as to why.

Cabbage, Chard and Kale

The first of the season's apples

Garlic and Peppers

A variety of snap beans


Jams, Jellies and Preserves

Local Honey

Handmade Pottery

These are just a few of the things available at our local farmer’s markets.  But the best thing?  The people.

Our Vegetable Farmer

Our Poultry Farmer

Our Bee Keeper

One of Beloved’s favorite t-shirts says sports the phrase, “Don’t Buy Food From Strangers.”  We don’t (and I don’t even have pictures of our beef farmer or the lady who sells handmade, artisan goat cheeses or our butcher or our local dairy farm).

Oh, how we love our farmers!

The Haul

And this little blogger cried, “Whee!  Whee!  Whee!” all the way home…
