What Will You Find at the Yellow Springs Farmer's Market?
One of the harbingers of summer is the abundance that shows itself at local farmer's markets. Wherever you are in the world, you'll know you are at home when you find a market. From fresh homegrown vegetables to homemade food and supplies, you've hit the local jackpot. The world seems to overflow with colorful bounty, ready for your table or yard. And, think of the countless meals you've created from farmer's markets...Yes, it's an age-old ode to market day, sung for thousands of years.
So, this past week, we explored the Farmer's Market in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Yellow Springs is an eclectic town, full of great eateries, intriguing shops, and colorful characters. We love the library. My favorite ring is from the Tibet shop, there. And Antioch College is back in town, after a 2-year hiatus.
So. On a hot Saturday, we drove over with friends. Our two 9 year-old daughters eagerly explored, various flavored honey sticks in hands and mouths. They were most attracted by the bunny seeking a home, although neither actually asked if they could take him/her (whew!).
We bought herbs, green beans, and a huge jar of honey that was calling my name. The green beans were so tender and crisp - devoured at dinner, with a sprinkle of black Hawaiian sea salt. The next day, the leftover green beans graced our Big Salads. Delicious!
See what else we found, on our half-block long perambulations...
It was so lovely - such a friendly crowd, people talking and meeting old friends, making new ones. I loved the heat rising from the pavement, the sun casting everything in a bright light. But you know what made me the happiest?
