The Farmer's Market
What a wonderful sight...fresh fruits and vegetables ready to eat. I remember the days that mom would load us kids in the station wagon for our weekly trip to the Farmer's Market. I am sure not everyone has had that experience but now we have the opportunity to relive those days or introduce our children to an alternative to the grocery store.
Every Saturday and Wednesdays, Salisbury operates a wonderful "market day" where residents can once again buy fresh food for their tables. The experience goes beyond purchasing food. We have met many interesting people selling their wares from farmers with produce, eggs, and meat; horticulturists with flowers and plants; and even some creative bakers and seamstresses.
We learned that there are many small growers in our area that have used technology to gain valuable customers. You can place your order online at their websites and pick up your purchase either day. Most fruits, vegetables, meat, and eggs are pesticide free with no hormones or antibiotics added.
Try something new this Saturday...enjoy the outdoors, see earth's bounty, and make new friends.
See you there!
