Planning a weekly adventure to the Farmers Market is a ritual many enjoy. Especially in the summer. The Farmers Market is a community gathering place – a place to meet up with friends, bring your children or just get a taste of small-town life. Markets have been the core to villages, towns and cities across the globe for thousands of years. The human interaction of the sights, smells and tastes of our markets, brings us back to a grounded level for food. Our basic need.
The food you buy at the Farmers Market is seasonal. It is fresh and delicious and reflects the truest flavours. Shopping and cooking from the farmers market helps you to reconnect with the cycles of nature in our region. As you look forward to asparagus in spring, savour sweet corn in summer, or bake pumpkins in autumn, you reconnect with the earth, the weather, and the turning of the year.
Our markets teaches us the importance of community, shows us where our food comes from, makes less of a carbon footprint and allows us to support our local growers and makers.
Enjoy this ritual every week. It is a great place to reconnect on so many levels… by meeting neighbors, enjoying an outdoor walk and shopping for a variety of fresh and healthy local foods…. just to name a few.
