Our local farmer’s market is set up! You know what that means??? Yummy fresh LOCAL fruits and veggies for us! They set up yesterday and the hubby and I have already been there twice. We’ve gotten the juiciest, BIGGEST oranges I’ve ever seen. We’ve also gotten tomatoes (that he and our youngest say are really yummy—the oldest and I don’t like tomatoes), cantaloupe, nectarines, potatoes, and some local blackberry honey that I can’t wait to try! Now yes, I realize that some of this “local” fare isn’t really local to my town. Oranges really don’t grow in Colorado. However, I love the small town feel of buying my fruits and veggies from a stand and getting greats deals! Five dollars for an eight-pound bag of oranges? Yes, please! Oh, and they have peaches, but I’m holding out for the Palisade peaches. Yum.
I’m sure we’ll visit this and other stands many times this summer. What’s your favorite find at farmer’s markets???
