What a great farmer's market! Herbs at $1 a bunch? That's a great price :)

Find a farmers market in your area and do go, you just can't beat the freshness and quality :)

Maryann .. yes, it is a great price .. I also bought a potted Oregano from this mom/daughter duo.

Lucy said...

Yep, Linda that was me again, those gremlins get me every so often LOL...

Just wanted to say how lucky you are to have a market like that available to you.... I will have to wait for my garden to start yielding.

Your market looks like I pictured a farm market. I wish we had something like that here. Oh well.

This market is 76 years old, and has 4th and 5th generation farmers ... it is a gem in the inner city!

I wish I had a market close by - such a fun thing to do. My market is a great big superstore that sells everything from jam to yard junk.

OhioMom said...

I love my market Giz :)

Where exactly is the market. I'm a west-sider. I went to the Kamm's Corner market this past Sunda, but there just wasn't anything there that screamed to be bought. I know several things should be hitting the tables in the next few weeks, though. Plan on hitting the Crocker Park Market on this Saturday, too.

Go to my sidebar and click on Coit Road Market, their page has a map.

As far as not being much this time of year, it is early. We have had mostly the spring veggies, hoophouse tomatoes etc. As the season progresses we will see more as the farmers start harvesting their crops. Last year, and this year too we will have lots of sweet corn! I put a lot of it up for winter.

When you eat seasonal, you have to be patient, we are not as far along as the southern states.

Hope you come and visit :)
