The Mister and I woke early on Saturday, excited to visit our downtown’s first Saturday Market of the season. We have a traditional year-round farmer’s market a short drive away, but for organic local produce and people-watching we love the Saturday Market.I’ve been blessed with Starbucks gift cards, so we started our morning with Pike Place blend before we walked a few blocks to the market. The sky was blue, the grass was green, and Greenville looked spit-shined and ready for the day. An early-rising family was starting out on the 22-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail, but other than those folks, we didn’t see too many other people.
Possibly, this is because everyone else was already at the Market!
Lots of families with small children were buying their produce. Long lines of amiable shoppers had already formed for the homemade breads and fresh ground coffee.
Local strawberries are in, and those gems were at the top of my shopping list.
And I spent a most enjoyable afternoon, sitting in the sun.
Just shelling peas.
Do you shop at a farmer’s market?
