Saturday was the perfect sunny morning for getting out to the Farmer’s Market. I love the one in our town because it’s all small farms, most of which are organic, and they’re all within about fifteen minutes of here. I am really big on supporting local agriculture if you can. It does cost more than the produce at the store, and It’s not always possible for a young couple on a small budget, but we try to do what we can. I really want to join a CSA when we have money in that in the budget. It’s a win-win for both the farm and the people.
If you’ve never been to a farmer’s market, it’s simple- bring cash, walk around, and enjoy shopping local, fresh produce. Ours also has grass-fed beef, fresh free range chicken and eggs, milk, flowers (seasonally), organic and homemade lotions, animals to pet, and a few local-grown, homemade food stands. There is something different every time we go. Saturday, we decided to try a stand that had amazing looking farm-grown and home-made desserts. We got one of every kind of cookie they had, and they were gone fast. Sawyer loved petting the baby goats one farmer brought, that was the highlight of his morning.
