Little Red is about a block away from a farmers market that runs weekly from April through November. I try to take advantage of it every Saturday morning and I make sure to save up my cash so that I can buy more than just a quarter pound of asparagus (yes, I actually did ask them to weight that out once...I only had change from my change jar...whoops).
I like supporting local farmers and it doesn't hurt that it's chemical-free...or that it's about half the price of what I'd otherwise pay for organic fare at Whole
What this picture doesn't show: homemade breads, pies and pastured-cow cheese. Piles of gorgeous asparagus. Heaps of bright-colored zucchini. The annual kids bike race currently making its way towards me on the path.
What this picture does show: I don't shower on Saturdays. I have very flat feet. Even though I live in Maryland, Virginia is still for lovers. Picking out jam requires intense concentration (and a double chin?).
