I love the busy-ness,
the interaction with the vendors
and the samples of fresh fruits & veggies-
I fell in Love with Farmer's Markets in CA-
I found many an excuse to go as often as I could.
My favorite was held on Wednesday Mornings
in Santa Monica along 3rd Street Promenade!
With the beach just down the road, it made for a
picture perfect day for me!
When we moved to TX, I was less than
confident that I would find one I loved as much.
In an effort to Make our Way in TX, we decided
to get out and LIVE a little-
and one of our first items of business- find me
a Farmers Market-
and Farmers Market we Found!!
The Dallas Farmers Market was by leaps and
bounds the best I have seen.
The produce was splendid,
|Peppers are so full of nutrients and a staple at our house for quick and easy|
|So many varieties and options to chose from|
|... even if a little shy|
In my previous life I do believe I was a farmer-
at least I would believe that if I
believed I'd lived a previous life.
It is difficult in these busy days to make time
to eat healthy, let alone to eat
Healthy AND Fresh!!
But I am going to say
Do IT! Make whatever sacrifice you can
to eat your food as close to the source as you can.
If there is one single change I have made that I
KNOW has made a difference in my health,
it is eliminating as much processed food as
absolutely possible from my diet.
If you have any questions-
this is close to the source
and this is NOT!
