Farmers Market Saturday - Farm Stand Tour
I know I've spoken of farm stands before, but I'm going to sing their praises again! Today, instead of hitting the farmers market, I took my younger niece to the next valley to check out the farm stands. The great thing about a farm stand trip (besides the obvious goodies) is the drive in the country. This time of year, with everything in bloom, the warm sunshine and the scent of cut hay in the fields, is the perfect time to take a scenic drive out to the farm stands.
The small town I drive out to has about a dozen stands along the roadside. You have to hit at least three of them each time you go, just to see what's in season and what specialties they offer. In season now: cherries!
And tomatoes! Although these are a bit unripe for me.
One must-stop stand for me is the place that sells fresh Samosas. I treat myself to one or two of these amazing Indian delights whenever I'm in the area.
My niece liked them too.
On the way out of town we spotted this funky frog welcoming visitors to an antique store.
A perfect day.
Take a drive this Summer and see if you can spot a farm stand in your area. Support your local farmers and take home some wonderful produce!
