Last year, a mommy friend introduced us to a local farmers market on Thursday afternoons. We have been going on a pretty regular basis and have loved getting to know the farmers and artisans. The farmers market moves inside a church basement for the winter, so we can still get some items (though limited).
Farmers markets are a great way to buy organic food. I found that the food is fresher and will usually last a little bit longer than store bought organic items. I have also found that the prices for organic produce, grass-fed beef, pasture raised chicken and pasture raised eggs are usually cheaper than purchasing the items at Whole Foods. Plus, a farmers market is an opportunity for my toddler to run around, listen to music, and connect with the community.
Here are some photos from our trip this week.
