52 Weeks of Joy: Week 29

Farmers markets are joyful in our house. We have a small garden, but what we don't grow, like sweet corn and beets...and muffins, we purchase at our local farmer's market. Both girls love strolling down Ninth Street on the south side of our beautiful courthouse square on Wednesday mornings. Mommy buys them a muffin sometimes before we take in the other fresh foods. Recently a lady started selling her homemade caramels. The sea salt caramel is a Mommy Treat. 

Check us out on the city website. Proof of our loyalty from last year! (If you don't see us right away, refresh the page until the picture changes.)

This weekend, Mommy and Daddy had a little getaway to South Haven, Michigan. Luckily, we were there for the weekly farmer's market. It was HUGE compared to ours. And there was a little of everything. Need a tie-dyed baby onesie?

Surely someone in this crowd did!

How about homemade soap? Pizza crust? Produce? Perennials for the flower gardens? A beautiful bird bath that looks like a leaf? Jalapeno focaccia bread? Earrings? And still more?

Whew! And then we learned that peaches are SEVENTY DOLLARS a bushel this year. Yikes! This dry weather is going to keep on hurting...

In the end, just some cinnamon swirl bread, a peach...maybe some fresh cut flowers? 

"Now how would we get those home safely?" Tim asks.
