Farm-fresh shopping

A Saturday morning on Fulton Street

Although it opened for the year on May 1, today was our first visit to the farmers market. There are just so many good things to be had. And it feels so much better than shopping for produce in a grocery store. These people are out there harvesting the crops and using the land to make a living. I inquired with one farmer about joining their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group. You pay a set amount and they deliver fresh, in-season produce. She told me that when they deliver the weekly selection, it’s been picked just three hours beforehand. How lovely!

Our haul today included cherries, strawberries, spinach, honey, red peppers, coreopsis, and another perennial that I’ve already forgotten the name of. Time to get outside and get that garden going. I’m so behind this year!
