Shining Moments

It’s exciting to awaken early on a Saturday morning to go to the local Farmer’s Market.

I find that it’s more than a market.

    It’s a meeting of community. A coming together.

People who share their goods

    From homemade breads and cinnamon buns

       To jams and jellies

         Spreads and dips

    Colorful vegetables

Hot pink and orange hanging planters

Clear glass vases with pale pink peonies and purple flowers

       And so much more.

 

Today I discovered some new delicacies that I could hardly wait to share with you.

Along with freshly brewed coffee and their famous cinnamon buns

       at Moving Meadows Farm

   I found some delicious honey whole wheat bread.

It tastes superb with the Blueberry-Lime Jam I bought from Whole Heart Farm.

Artisan breads and various jams and syrups create their attractive display.

So glad I stopped by there this morning.

But the greatest surprise was in seeing one of my kids at GreenHearts Farm.

Julie Brooks along with her sister Jennifer Brooks-Lane laughed as we reminisced about days when I was Julie’s first grade teacher.

Always my children no matter how old they get.

So full of life today.

They showed me their healthy products which interested me

     having recently chosen a vegan diet.

It was hard to know what to choose as I looked over their products

  But finally I decided on some Samosas.

They look yummy and are made with potatoes, onion, tortilla, and sweet peas

      with ginger, cinnamon, chipotle chili pepper and more.

We will enjoy them for dinner tonight.

 

Plump red strawberries and tasty tomatoes from C & T Produce

      rounded out our Farmers Market experience today.

God’s great world continues to give us so much to enjoy.

Blessed beyond measure.

Friend meeting friend. Neighbors chatting.

Don’t you feel the same?

Have a great weekend

   and if you couldn’t go today

        go to the Farmers Market next Saturday.
