Farmers’ Market Opening Day!

on

Cold or no cold (weather and illness), nothing was going to stop me from making it to opening day of my local farmers’ market. I was under slept and under caffeinated, but the rush of pulling into my usual parking space and seeing the familiar scene of white tents and a meandering crowd was enough to perk me up.

Since I had rehearsal in the morning, I was there super early and didn’t get to see every vendor, but I did get to see a few from whom I regularly buy and met some new ones. But the craziest part of the day was the fact that IT SNOWED! In April!

One minute it was drizzling, the next ice was descending, and finally we got big, fluffy, white snow. Most people I’m sure we’re annoyed, but I thought it was fun. And it didn’t stop me from getting my loot.

I got my usual potatoes, eggs, and coffee ($1 off because I used my KeepCup!). What’s new is the maple syrup purchased from the coffee shop stand that comes from a family farm in Vermont and the honey wheat bread, which I had gazed upon all last season but never got around to buying. Oh, and as a belated Arbor Day celebration, they were giving away 300 free baby trees, and I got two (for my mom; I have no green thumb). My parents already found new homes for them in our yard.

So it was a fantastic morning at the farmers’ market, and I’m so glad they’re back every Saturday. Go out to your local farmers’ market and support local and support small farmers!
