Summer's bounty cannot be equaled when it comes to the offerings of local farmers markets.
This is the time of year when fruits, veggies, and flowers are plentiful.
Luckily, in New England, farmers markets pop up like dandelion weeds. Almost every town around sponsors one and it's great fun to visit a variety of them.
The yummy produce and gorgeous blooms shown in today's post came from a market in a small town in Western Massachusetts.
The location is ideal. One can stroll from vendor to vendor with grass underfoot. If the day is perfect, like on Friday, it makes such an excursion even more wonderful.
The maple nut granola purchased at this particular market is to die for. It's a little pricey but worth every dime. Oh man, talk about yummified.
Let's hear it for local farmers who work very long hours at this time of year. Thanks to them, trips to farmers markets are a highlight of sweet summer.
Farmers markets also make my heart fill to the very brim with gratitude for such abundance and variety.
p.s. Can you tell how much I love the flower bouquets?
