I stopped by one of my local farmer’s markets a few days ago in hopes of buying some really great lettuce, and fresh green peas and spinach and zucchini. Creamie and I came prepared with stroller and water and reusable shopping bags and sunscreen and snacks and everything. I was really hoping to find something kind of like this.

But I was disappointed. This particular Farmers Market was mostly markety stuff (hair accessories, baby paraphernalia, jewelry and scented candles) and not much farmer. Which is fine if you are looking for hair accessories or baby paraphernalia or jewelry or scented candles. But it’s not so great when you want baby spinach and fresh picked brocolli. Although I did find some local raw honey at one stand which is unbelievably delicious. And there were some Spanish foreign exchange students who were selling zucchini and squash and beets. They were so excited for me to buy something, well it was probably more a matter of being excited for anyone to buy something. I bought a few zucchini’s and some beets, but mostly because I felt sorry for them. The students, not the vegetables. Here’s hoping that next week’s not quite as local, but probably better, farmers market will have a few more veggies. And more farmers. I am craving fresh produce. I hope your weekend is turning out delicious!
