Do you frequent your farmer’s market? I remember growing up in a very conservative family and only “hippies” went to Saturday Market and Farmers Market. We always avoided downtown on Tuesdays and Saturdays. It wasn’t until I worked downtown in the early 90’s and got to see first hand what the Tuesday farmers market was. It was amazing! I can’t believe I had missed out on all this amazing farm fresh food, right here in downtown! I didn’t have to drive to the country and go to 2 or 3 farms, they all came to me! So, now, either I’m a hippie too, or just all kinds of people from all walks of life partake in the joys of farmers market. Either way, I love it.
I am so glad I have found this amazing venue for fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, cheese, nuts; basically anything grown on a farm. I’m fortune to have my farmers market open 3 days each week. They can trace their roots back to 1915. There are over 85 growers & producers and it spans the length of 3 city blocks.
