One of our favorite things to do on the weekend is head to the farmers market to do our weekly shop. While there we sample fruits and veggies, breads and whatever else is available. We often pick up a snack to share and watch listen to the live music.
One thing I love about the farmers market is being able to have Edith and Alder participate in the process of picking out what we are going to eat that week. We touch, smell and chose a variety of items. Edith has taken to also paying for our veggies – it’s a delight to see her squeal each time the person takes the money and thanks her. It’s the little things in life am I right?
Neil or I always wear Alder because it allows us to be hands free and it allows him to part of the action. He can see better and it allows us to talk to him about everything we are buying, doing or seeing. It really just makes life easier and more fun.
This week Edith found a giant long pumpkin and declared it her phone. I just love her imagination. She also picked out a variety of root veggies that I cooked up in a stew (you can find the recipe here).
What do you like to do on the weekends? Do you have a favorite farmers market?

I keep hearing great things about the Woodstock FM!
Such cute kids!! It’s awesome they get to experience this at such a young age. Creating future farmer’s market shoppers 🙂
I also love going to the farmer’s market. My favorite right now is the Saturday Hollywood Farmers Market in NE. They have the perfect number of vendors while not too many crowds!
