One of my all time fav things to do is take a stroll around a farmer’s market.
On any given Saturday or Sunday you can wind up happening upon one in your area and that is part of the appeal.

Thus in silence in dreams’ projections,
Returning, resuming, I thread my way through the hospitals;
The hurt and wounded I pacify with soothing hand,
I sit by the restless all the dark night — some are so young;
Some suffer so much — I recall the experience sweet and sad . . .
I had to…HA!

Foregoing traditional brunch doesnt mean you starve at a farmers market. Either by way of numerous samples or paying for delicious fresh and often organic eats, you will leave satisfied. Made on the spot – blueberry buckwheat pancakes!
