To Market, To Market

Farmers Market

We didn't buy a fat pig but I think we might have done a little jig or two. What's a Saturday morning without a little dancing?!

Our farmer's market is in full swing. I love going each week. Greeting the familiar faces. Discovering what has come in to season this week. The weathered farmer sneaking a strawberry or two to the boys. Coming home with a very full market bag and new ideas.

From the Farmer's Market

Each meal is the same - "This X came from the farmer's market!" Chaz and most especially Topher get so excited by this. Edmund is coming around. For awhile it was "What difference does that make?" but I think he starting to get it. The boys are so much more willing to eat things when it comes from the farmer. Topher even ate a tomato! That's big around here.
