Over the weekend I finally checked out our local Farmers Market with my good friend Alyce. Alyce goes every Saturday morning...around 7 am. I told her if you ever go more like 9 am, let me know. (To review, I'm not a morning person.) So, she did. I met her there and I enjoyed it so much. I know, some of you are probably thinking..."you need to get out more", but it was a beautiful fall morning and the hustle and bustle was on. Beautiful produce, flowers, baked goods, herbs and all very fresh and awesome prices.
I especially LOVE those deep fall colors in the coxcomb flowers that I bought. I also love the persimmon branch from the last picture. So "fall". Oh, and the celery was the greenest celery I think I've ever bought. Peppers 3/$1, cauliflower $2, pumpkin $5, glads $3...it's like a Target clearance sale for produce! And, as Alyce reminds me, all while "supporting our local Michigan farmers".
What a great way to start a Saturday morning followed by breakfast and lots of chit chat with a good friend. I need more of this "me time" stuff. I almost let myself go to a baseball game and pick up my daughter from a sleepover instead, but it all worked out and I'm so glad it did. I'll be baaack!!
