On Saturday, I finally made my way to the Bath Farmer’s Market. It was a beautiful day and I had a wonderful time (as only a food geek like I would). There were about twenty vendors to peruse with an excellent selection which included mushrooms, cheese, eggs, flowers, honey, maple syrup, beef, pork, baked goods and lots of vegetables. Since it was my first visit and I wanted to see was available, I only purchased some baby red potatoes and basil.
I have also come to the conclusion that everyone is happy at a farmer’s market. I can’t imagine not being happy at a farmer’s market. It’s sunny, its warm, there’s fresh organic local produce everwhere you look, children and dogs are running around. It’s just a happy place.
I felt a little badly about taking so long to post this, but my procrastination was rewarded with “13 Strategies for Shopping a Farmers Market” from the Chicago Tribune. There are some good tips there, especially if you’re inexperienced with farmer’s markets.
