Enjoy Your Local Farmers Market

Leave a comment

Farmers Market HaulIt’s finally starting to feel like spring! Well, in most places at least.

Nonetheless, it’s a great time to get outside and shop local. I was craving some fresh air and even fresher veggies this morning so I hit my favorite farmers market, the Marietta Square Farmers Market, for the first time this season. Take a look at my beautiful haul! I can’t begin to describe my love for arugula.

Anywho, I often talk about social justice here on my blog, and farmers markets are a great way to keep the supply chain short. They also help stimulate the local economy and provide income for our neighbors. And, if you have kids, it’s a great place to teach them about where actual food comes from, as well as meet the folks that grow it. Plus, it’s so much more fun to walk around than a grocery store. (Note: This is coming from someone who really loves to walk around grocery stores.) Oh my, and if you’ve never had food this fresh, you’re missing out. The tastes are so much stronger and delicious.

So, get out there and enjoy your local farmers market! You won’t regret it!
