Freshly Farmed

Last Saturday, I finally took my first trip to the local open-all-week farmers' market. And right about now, I'm kicking myself for having not gone sooner, because I could have been enjoying this for the last three years!

The Farm Patch in Bryan. Local produce and flower market!

I don't know why I had never gone before! It's really close to my house, and they have things that my regular grocery store doesn't! (Plus, it's cheaper and the produce looks way better.) And it makes me happy knowing that I'm supporting local farmers.

I bought entirely way too much stuff; since I didn't know what to expect, I didn't make a list and just bought anything that caught my eye. For under $12, I got cherry tomatoes, corn on the cob, a head of lettuce, some new potatoes, apples, plums and a carton of fresh strawberries.


I'm in love. :)

Do you enjoy going to farmers' markets?


  1. Those strawberries look so good! I used to go to the farmers' market with my mom when I was younger, but I need to check out ones around here now.

  2. I'm sad I never went when we lived there - I love farmer's markets!
