Farmers Market

     We hit the local farmer market this weekend. It's still a habit in the making, but we're getting there. There are a few highlights that are bubbling to the surface in regards to our visits. First off, the organic selection makes shopping for fruits and veggies at the supermarket a thing of the past. It may not be year round, so we'll need to pay attention, but we can get most everything we eat right there. Second, it's been great to get to know the a few new local artists. The glass blower, the bead lady, etc. Third, there's a few things that help generate conversation with my daughter. There's a bird lady, who sells cages and some small parakeet type birds. There was also a guy selling earthworms. We spend around an hour hanging out, and then move onto the shops on the main drag.
     It's a really good time, so seek out your local farmers market. The Farmers Market Finder app from Apptika, Inc. here is a great place to start. I may add another link or two in the future, but go ahead and check out your local area. You'll be glad you did.
