Farmers markets

Fresh produce, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

My favourite outing each week, when I am home, is going to the local farmers market early on a Saturday morning. The colour, the smells, the atmosphere, the variety of produce. the happy atmosphere, families and groups meeting and greeting. In the background local musicians add to the vibe as people sit around enjoying a cup of organic, locally grown, picked, ground and brewed coffee. Food vendors offer tasty, multicultural dishes cooked fresh as you order them.

These markets started approx 6 years ago with a handful of local growers but now they have become major competition to the supermarkets. The produce bought at the supermarkets may last 3 days in the fridge, farmers market produce lasts all week, sometimes longer, so I can buy enough fruit and veg to last from market to market, and it is much tastier.
