It’s sometimes easy to forget how lucky we are in California to have access to year-round Farmers’ Markets and that the growing season is so much longer than in other parts of the country. For example, I just took the very last tomatoes off our plants the other day…
We go to several Farmers’ Markets most weeks, but I haven’t taken any pictures in a long time as chasing after a very excited toddler and taking pictures at the same time just isn’t really an option…
So over the weekend, I dug out an old friend in the back of the trunk: a stroller. At first the toddler was almost in disbelief; I think he was in fact too shocked to say his usual "no way"when I put him in...
But once I got him a pretzel he was much happier… And since he ate almost an entire pretzel by himself, I was able to take some pictures without too many interruptions…
The variety and quality of the produce is truly amazing, especially considering that it’s November!
And here is what we got:
I see some fresh salsa in our near future!
And I also got some “splurge” items:
In addition, we also got some organic whole grain bread, some pretzels, and some marinated tofu.
I truly enjoy shopping at Farmers’ Markets and getting to know the farmers and vendors. It makes me feel connected to the food we eat, and I feel truly fortunate that we live in an area where we get to shop at a Farmers’ Market all year long.
