Farmers Market in July
I am going to be visiting farmers markets in my area this summer. I have noticed a bunch of them have popped up here and there. Some are a drive to get to. It may be worth it. I am sick and tired of the yucky veggies and fruit in my grocery stores. I get so mad cause I go to buy Florida oranges and I don't see any from Florida in the grocery store. I see them from California and out of the USA. I live in Florida. Why can't I have Florida fruit in my local grocery stores? I am also tired of buying really pretty fruit and veggies that taste like nothing. Grocery stores seem to buy from farmers who just like to grow for color and size. I hate that. I really do. I want a meal. A really good meal. If my thumb was green, I would be planting and making my own little garden. I want to taste the food and enjoy the flavors. I visited this market today and It was really small but worth the trip. I got to taste all kind of goodies. I love tasting. You can't very well taste at the grocery store can you? They want you to taste their goods. They know what they have and are proud of it. You also get more than just fruits and veggies. You will find homemade dips and pickles and sauces. They had hummus here. Oh Yum! I love that. This guy makes everything from fresh ingredients and it was yummy. However I walked with garlic breath after visiting with him. But it was very tasty. There was homemade cookies. Homemade dog biscuits and treats. You must visit a local market by you. It will be worth the visit. You will be so happy. Sometimes the price is cheaper than the grocery store. You get to know the vendors the more you go. Tell your friends. Let them in on your good find. Help your local farmer. They need the support from you and your friends. Take turns throwing meals at each others homes. Make it an experiment dinner night with your friends and make something new with your fresh tasty picks. If you have questions about their items, ask them. They will tell you. They know all about it. They grew it. These were all organic farmers/vendors at this market. I do recommend making a list before you go with meal plans in mind. Now I want leek soup! Oh my.
