Maybe it is because I grew up on a farm but there are few things better than spending a day leisurely browsing a farmers' market. I love treating myself to coffee and a pastry while strolling around a local farmers' market and then coming home with lots of fresh produce and pretty flowers for the upcoming week. Last week I got so excited about fall when I spotted an abundance of pumpkins, squash, and gourds had become available.
It makes me feel really great to support local farmers by purchasing fresh, local, in-season produce but I also find going to a farmers' market to be a really fun, relaxing experience. Instead of rushing around a crowd, sometimes stressful grocery store to get out as soon as possible I take my time and savor farmers' market experiences.
Trips to the farmers' market are meant to be casual but to look put-together I like to wear simple like a striped tee and denim Bermuda shorts with simple jewelry. It is also important to take a large tote ( this one is my favorite) to carry purchases around in. Do you love spending early Saturday mornings taking a stroll around the farmers' market too?
