Love how the farmer's market wakes up your senses. The colors, textures and smells are irresistable. Enjoyed eating a cucumber right from the bucket.
Going to the farmer's market always reminds me of how important it is to eat locally grown foods whenever possible. Barbara Kingsolver has a new book called Animal, Vegetable, Miracle about her experiment doing this for a year. My undergraduate degree is in environmental studies. In college I was very involved with researching and getting involved with community gardens and local urban agriculture. This is near and dear to my heart. So glad to support these local farmers and you can't beat the taste of veggies that have never seen the inside of a refrigerator. Yum!
