These markets are a great way for city dwellers to get fresh produce straight from the farm.
In these modern times the local markets have been replaced by supermarkets that ship in produce that has been packaged and produced and the natural ripening cycle disrupted by chemicals and such. Many people are now looking at what is in their food and researching how that affects their health.
Anyone who knows me knows that I have been in a lifelong battle with my weight. And I know that the problem stems from me and my actions. Too many years eating improperly and not exercising enough. However I have been trying to learn more about the connection between good, clean food, exercise and good health. And these places offer foods to consider.
And there even places for the carnivore to satisfy their hunger. These animals are raised as naturally as possible without the chemicals and fattening additives that some meat producers use.
All the glorious food! I got there close to closing time so I missed a lot of the displays.
There is more than gastronomically delights at a farmer's market.
And what festival would be complete without music?
page. It has a list of all the markets with times and dates.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
