My earliest childhood memory is helping my grandparents sell sweet corn and other produce at a Farmers Market in Carrboro, NC. Thirty-some years later, one of my favorite things to do is visit a Farmers Market. I’m sure it is the combination of business, agriculture, and salt-of-the earth people that attracts me to any Farmers Market or road-side produce stand I pass.
Today was Blueberry day at the State Farmers Market in Raleigh and I made time to visit. I enjoyed browsing, sampling, and buying local North Carolina products. Blueberries were on full display! A few of photos of my experience are below.
Take time to visit a Farmers Market this summer! Encourage your friends and family to do the same by sharing this information. If you’re in Raleigh, a calendar of special events at the State Farmers Market can be found here.
