It was our special thing when I was growing up, every Wednesday after school my mom and I would drive the 30 minutes to a farmers market north of our house. It was a small market, but it was full of treasures to me. I loved to pick out a little cup of freshly cut flowers and a pillowy round of fresh rolls. I would spend the entire drive home pressing my nose against the plastic wrapping, breathing in the fresh yeast smell.
Now when I go to Farmer’s Markets I’m still that little girl fascinated by each and every thing. I love slowly perusing each table considering what to buy (I’d love to buy one of everything!) and how I might use it later. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday morning than making my way through the market with my husband and an ever-growing bag of goodies.
