Wednesdays and Saturdays are Farmer's Market days for us, and it's the highlight of my summers. Almost all the produce at our markets is Organic, the Farmers are cheerful and happy, the mood is light, it's a wonderful experience every time. I feel so lucky to be able to have a lovely time at the market, then go home and make a big salad or pasta dish with veggies that were picked that morning.

It's a great feeling to build a relationship with the people who grow your food, I love supporting our Farmers. When you go to the Farmer's Market, you get tomatoes that taste like tomatoes. Your food is bursting with color and vitamins, it hasn't been sitting on a truck in some sort of climate control, it's way more eco friendly and you're insuring that the farmers can continue to grow because they know they'll be supported. It's also a great way to connect with and support your community and grow your local economy. It's a win-win for everyone.
