The blessings of the farmer’s market

How wonderful to begin Saturday morning with a trip to the farmer’s market.  Although we try to go every weekend all year long, it is much easier to get motivated to go when the weather welcomes the trip.  It’s April in Virginia, and the stalls are expanding.  Not only did we get our bread and mushrooms, favorite root vegetables (go sweet potatos!) and apples, but we were able to stock up on green items….Middle Eastern cucumbers, spinach, salad, and argula.  Given that I’m in the midst of reading Diet for a Hot Planet, it’s good to know that shopping local is something we can do, and love doing.
