Since last May we have been so fortunate to have an open air fresh produce market
just four blocks away. Now I will admit that I am a bit spoiled because I
already have a wonderful organic co-op eight blocks away and a Saturday farmer's
market just one mile away. However, this girl just loves to support local
farmers while I'm getting my share of vitamins and minerals from fresh
and local produce!
And Bentley loves fresh produce too ~ especially carrots and apples.
But sadly, harvest is upon us and the market will go away until next May.
The last day will be October 31st when they will host a customer appreciation
day. Let's face it, we North Enders are always looking for an
excuse to party!
But it's been fun. I could stop by and visit my favorite antique shops.
Chat with my friends, and pick up veggies, fruit, my favorite milk in a bottle,
eggs and flowers too.
There is something so satisfying about buying from a small local
vendor. Sorry Costco, I love you too but you are not quite so charming.
I will have to check out the pumpkin carving contest next weekend.
Looks like it has blog posting potential!
While I am sad to see the season end, the good news is that they
will be back next May!
Have a glorious fall weekend everyone and be sure to stop
by and visit
Bentley and I stopped by to visit his grandma today. He knows when we
are getting close to her house and he whimpers like a baby!
