Go to the Farmer's Market. DONE.

June 13, 2012

(creepin' on some deliciousness)

Last Saturday I managed to mark off another one of my 40 before 20 goals! In my college town, the Farmer's Market is a big deal. It's bustling every Saturday in the town square and is a lot of fun. Since I'm home for the summer, I decided to check out our local Farmer's Market scene. Though it's much smaller/quieter, it was nonetheless charming! The people selling were so incredibly nice and the day was just perfect out.

One of my good guy friend's family owns a local farm/orchard. He works for his family during the week and sells at the market on Saturday. The experience was improved ten fold because we all got to spend a little time with him, joking around and sampling some delicious fruit. Growing up, it's a lot harder to see friends as frequently. It's one of the downsides of growing up. We all have jobs and other interests. Ah.

 Also, may I mention that the fruit buying experience is improved ten fold whenever the seller allows lots of sampling and back stories about every item on the table? I bought blueberries, blackberries, and some really juicy peaches for less than $15! I've been snacking on my goods all week and am so excited to make going to the Farmer's Market and supporting my local economy a habit. I enjoy getting some healthy snacks and the awesome atmosphere. Hooray to another item off my list!

So, do you/have you ever been to the Farmer's Market? I'd love to hear all about it!
