Fresh Finds At The Farmers Market
I love when this time of year comes around and the Farmer's Markets are filled with fresh fruit and vegetables. It is a true sign that summer is finally here. The Farmer's Markets also give me a chance to buy from local people who actually grow their fruits and veggies right in their fields. I will support my local businesses when I can because I know how it is to be a small business owner. It is not an easy thing to do.
I have a little market just up the street from my house that I visit throughout the year. The little gentleman that runs it, does his very best to keep as much fresh fruit and veggies around all year around as he can. I love stopping in and having the friendly conversation with him. This definitely something that you do not get when you are stopping by your local chain store. In the few years since I moved to the area that I live in now, I have always visited the little market and pretty much gotten all of my fruits and veggies from him. I have never gotten one product from him that was bad. As a matter of fact, most of the time he will throw in a few extras for me. I think it means a lot to him that I come by and shop from him and I know it means a lot to me to know that I am getting quality produce. So, if you have a chance visit and buy from you local little guy. You never know where it might take you.
