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!
One of my favorite farmers markets is in the little town of Harbor Springs, Michigan. Have you ever been there? I was born up there and my family has been going there for years. We just love it! Downtown Harbor Springs 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.
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. Look at these Michigan Blueberries! They are huge!
Look at these gorgeous carrots! Unlike those baby carrots in the bag, they actually taste like carrots! You know what I mean?
These basil plants smelled amazing!
I love treating myself to a big bouquet or two of flowers. You just gotta do that once in a while!
I love this farmers market because besides produce they have a lot of different things too. Here’s my daughter Ireland with her little friends, Keegan and Maggie, admiring these amazing bright colored yarns. Makes me want to learn to knit.
And, they even have live music! What a special treat!
