There's just something so friendly and inviting about the Farmer's Markets back home. You know you are helping local farmers. The produce is picked fresh within the last 24 hours. It's ready to eat now. There are samples! And you can buy just enough for the week and start fresh the following week.
My personal favorites are the bouquets of flowers, vegetables, raspberries, and honey. But a stop at the olive oil stand is always enjoyed.
If you go to the Bloomington Farmer's Market, be sure to stop and get some pizza from my friend's stand. Made-on-the-spot brick over pizza. So good!!
