Farmers . Market

After recently reading about how much fuel it takes to ship produce to the grocery store, B. and I have decided to try and lessen our carbon footprint by buying as much of our produce as we can from our local farmer's market.

This past Saturday was our first trip this year, and it's so difficult not to go overboard and buy absolutely everything!

There are booths where you can buy everything from locally made honey (so good!) to fresh fish to organic goat cheese!!

i love places like this. i try to buy as local as possible but the farmers market here is indoors and doesnt have as much appeal as the one here.

thats awesome! i agree - markets like that can be overwhelming with all of the goodies, its hard to not take a little of everything home
