In honor of Massachusetts Farmers Market Week and the blogathon set up by Loving Local, I thought we’d give visiting a farmer’s market another try. We dropped by the Bedford Farmers’ Market, and everyone was much happier this time round. It wasn’t quite as hot, and we found a parking spot right next to the market. We bought a pint of delicious cherry tomatoes and some green beans. I tried to convince my kids that we should get a yellow cucumber instead of the cherry tomatoes, but they were not interested.
The highlight for both of them was getting their hands stamped at one of the booths:
We plan to visit a few more farmers’ markets over the next few weeks – and hopefully I’ll get my kids to branch out and try some less familiar vegetables! Hopefully the combination of visiting farms, farmers’ markets, and planting our own tomatoes and strawberries will give my kids a better understanding and appreciation of where food comes from!
