Our Local Farmer's Market

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning  is to ride our bikes downtown to our local farmer's market. The Market on the Square goes on twice a year: once in the spring into summer, taking a break during the heat of August and September, and then starting up again in the fall.

Right now the weather is just perfect for the fall farmer's market. The mornings are cool and the humidity is low.  Saturday morning we enjoyed our coffee on the front porch and then hopped on our bikes and rode downtown to the market.
The farmer's market is in the picturesque Cathedral Square. What a gorgeous day!

An impressive plant selection from local grower Darryl Miller. If I hadn't been on a bike I would have been tempted to take something home.
Beautiful zinnias 3 for $1.00! You can't beat that! I love love love fresh flowers!

It's that time of year again! Pecan pie, homemade candy, cookies, pecan crusted fish, pecans in dressing...nothing beats local pecans. They're my favorite.
Turnips. I don't know much about turnips except that they're very photogenic.
Josey and Jasper love these all natural sweet potato biscuits from the Bread Lady. We buy these quite often.

Delicious fresh produce!

My favorite local farmer! Fresh goat cheese and farm fresh eggs. You can't beat fresh local eggs. The goat cheese is to die for! I bought the garlic and herb variety...creamy goodness...so delicious. I also scored some persimmons, which I have yet to try.

 Locally grown! That makes me happy!
There are plenty of wonderful local artists at the market too.
Quilting has become my new obsession, although I have so much to learn. Such fine detail!
More quilts. Unique designs made with decorative fabrics. Beautiful!
All that shopping made me hungry!

We couldn't have asked for a better day! Buy Fresh! Buy Local! Support your local farmers!
