Our local shopping center started a Saturday market and today was there second week. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have this happening so close to home. No more long drives on Friday mornings for fresh produce! I walked around to each vendor getting to know them and all they were offering. So many great things going on there. There were multiple tables of fresh fruits and veggies, a wide variety of local plants and flowers, children’s clothing, fresh baked goods, local cheeses and fish, specialty items, organic teas and supplements, and so so many souvenirs and goods made by local artisans. I stocked up on kale at 60 cents a batch, organic golden berries, homemade German mustard, organic guanabana (soursop) tea, coconut cake, papayas and mangoes, of course. ;) Even the kids had a good time with the huge trampoline and jumping castle. I love this town and it warms my heart seeing everyone come together like this. It’s going to be great watching this grow with the support of the local community.
