Summer Farmers Market

One thing I am enjoying this year is the new Farmers Market near our home.
My family and I can walk there on Saturday afternoons to pick out fresh fruits, vegetables, soap, seafood and meat from our local farmers. Those strawberries are so fresh – still warm from the sun. There is even a booth where they make big fresh glazed donuts…I have to stay away from that section but it gets the kids there.
This is what we brought home today – along with a pork roast but nobody wants to see a photo of raw meat. The little pot is filled with oregano and basil and only cost me $3 with the old perfectly warn terracotta planter.
Green and red leaf lettuce, green beans, peas, beets, tomatoes and strawberries.
Last weekend I purchased this handmade lavender soap, It smells so wonderful.
I feel good about supporting local farmers AND feeding my family fresh food.

Last week we walked Mazi to market with us…she was too high maintenance with her socializing so she didn’t get to come this time. I am trying to grow her hair out around her face….she looks so shaggy but she’s such a little teddy bear.
If you have a farmers market near you – it is worth the trip. The produce and meat are ‘hands down’ so much better than the grocery store. If you don’t know of a market close by – do a Google search to find one and support your local farmers.
