Fun at the Harbor Springs Farmers Market

Fun at the Harbor Springs Farmers Market

I love to shop! Forget the mall. My favorite place to shop is the farmers market! It’s full of surprises! You never know what’s going to be there. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt. And, this week I found lots of gems!

I’ve been enjoying as much time as I can at the cottage in Harbor Springs, Michigan. Have you ever been to Harbor Springs or northern Michigan? I was born up here and my family has been coming here for years. We just love it! Downtown Harbor is a such cute little place! Twice a week in the summer, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, they close down the street for a big farmers market. Every Wednesday and Saturday I’m there!

This week we had houseguests. My friend Rhonda brought two of her kiddos Kegan and Maggie up and their dog Mo. My daughter Ireland and I had a blast showing them all our favorite spots. After a coffee at my favorite little spot, it’s time to get down to business. First, I take a stroll through the market.

You know, see what everybody’s got. Then, I decide what I want and go back to get it. This week the Michigan Blueberries were huge!

There was no way I could pass these beauties up! I’m dreaming of making my Blueberry Layered Dessert, Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad, and my Best Ever Blueberry Muffins too!

I love all the home grown lettuce. There’s just nothing like it for amazing fresh salads.

I had to grab a bunch of these gorgeous carrots! They actually taste like carrots! You know what I mean?

Ireland and Maggie were eyeing up homemade jam. How could I say no to that? LOL!

I love treating myself to a big bouquet or two of flowers. You just gotta do that once in awhile!

I love this farmers market because besides produce they have a lot of different things too. Like amazing bright colored yarns. Makes me want to learn to knit.

And, they even have live music! What a special treat!

I can’t wait to see what’s at the market tomorrow morning. I’ll be there bright and early! I promise to post pictures on Facebook and Instagram. Follow me! Hoping for tomatoes and sweet corn soon!
