Farmers markets is a source of so many beautiful things all in one place. The color, the samples, the random conversations, the freshness of the products and all the fresh meals that will soon be in your pie hole. Farmers markets are wonderful places to grab a few things and picnic right then and there. I’ve found myself purchasing some fresh bread, tomatoes and cheeses and have a simple lunch eating my newly purchased wares. (Lets be honest here…I couldn’t wait to get home so I had to wolf down all my purchases on the quick.)
Supermarkets are convenient and wonderful in their own right but farmers markets are a great place to purchase fresh ingredients and do something great for the farmers and merchants that are available right there in your community. Plus….all the vivid colors from nature right there for your viewing pleasure! Oh and also the samples. Delicious fresh fresh samples.
Ideally I wish I could just grab my fruits and veggies straight from the source, like these cherries from my grandfather’s tree in Hungary. But living in the bustling city this is simply not as easy.
