|Hiking through McTaggart|
|Raspberries, freshly picked, laid|
out in a single layer on a baking tray,
placed in the freezer, and bagged
once frozen, keep their shape
all winter long, never turning
to mush or a solid mass.
|There's nothing like enjoying |
the sweet crunch
the very freshest beans!
- There is something incredibly meaningful and vitally important about knowing where your food comes from.
- There is something highly valuable and intrinsically motivating about purchasing locally grown & produced foods and handicrafts and supporting the local economy in an essential way.
- And there is something distinctly satisfying about forging connections with friends, neighbours, vendors and sponsors in a central meeting place, helping to keep a vibrant community spirit alive in our fragmented society.
I am new to blogging, and I am passionate about farmers’ markets, so come along for the ride. This blog won’t be just about our market, though that will be its focus during market season. I hope, instead, to inspire you to embrace market culture all year long. I hope that the stories and ideas I share with you here will encourage you to share your thoughts, feelings, passions and inspirations about farmers’ markets. And I hope that they will leave you feeling inspired by market culture, and encouraged enough to make it part of your life in a meaningful, regular way.
