Things I’m Thankful For #6

I’m thankful for Farmer’s Markets, especially when there’s great weather, and great company!

Jason and I checked out a new [to us] farmer’s market up in Maitland. The scenery was much nicer than the downtown scene.

It was thankful just to stroll through the park.

(Jason was ahead of me the whole time, I’m a slow poke with these toes!)

What do you love about farmer’s markets? The plants? The produce? Or just strolling around, taking in the fresh air?

  10. I go to the local farmers market every Thursday!! I love the fresh fruit and veggies, the best part is bringing it home and the smiles I get from the boys……they love fruits and veggies!!!!

  11. I just watched Food Inc and am not happy that our Farmer’s Market isn’t year around. I just love how good it is for the environment.

  13. […] 8, 2009 by MegaNerd After stocking up on produce at the farmer’s market, JasoNerd and I headed to lunch at a new place called Green Day […]

  14. I have a farmer’s market obsession. I have been very spoiled by the cenyc greenmarket system in ny (it’s amazing) and I just love seeing all the different produce and yummy things!

  15. I am really lucky because the town that I live in in Oz has a local farmers market every weekend. I am blessed because I am able to get fresh organic produce every week. I love Farmers markets–especially the free samples.

  16. Farmers Markets are the best! Not only does it help support local farmers and growers, but fresh produce tastes so much better than store bought!
