Farmers Market Saturdays


Today I wanted to direct you to a great website that will help you find a farmers market in your area - or whatever area you travel to this Summer.

Local Harvest is a fabulous organization where you can find great info on local markets, farms or read blogs by growers and shop their online farm stores.



 Do check out what markets are in your area, and be a tourist in your own town.  Get to know your growers and artisans and enjoy the bounty that the Earth and the Summer have to offer!

Thank you for this information. I'll check it out. I do know we have a big one on 14th street in Manhattan. We also have an indoor place down the block from where I work. It's a year round market and such fun just to walk through.

Hi Rue,

Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a comment. I hope you liked the link to my story about our Market Boat. They are wonderful friends and they work so hard, as do all farmers, bakers, canners, and farmer's market folks. All that setting up on top of everything. I appreciate them.

Whenever we travel we always make a point to visit the local markets. I appreciate the link you provided. Will make things easier.

This coming weekend we're attending the Kneader's Conference in Skowhegan, Maine. People will be building outdoor wood fired ovens and baking on site-as well as sharing knowledge.

Happy day to you,
