The town I live in may not have a lot to offer from it's little corner of Northern New York, but it has one heck of a farmer's market! Every Wednesday, I walk the 2 miles round trip to the market and take in all the fresh produce, flowers and baked products. I love seeing all the colours, especially this time of year, when the pumpkins are being sold. I have decided that nothing beats a tomato fresh from someone's garden. Fresh produce is so much better than the stuff in the grocery stores! I don't have a garden, so I think of the market as my own personal garden, but I don't have to do any of the work (except walk there). And the prices at the market...wow! I can buy all my fresh produce for the week for under $7.00. I can't do that at a grocery store! I don't know what I am going to do when the market ends in a couple of weeks. I guess it's back to plain old grocery store produce. Yuck!
