The mom and I took a little trip to the farmer’s market today, and what a time that was had by all!
I love the people you meet at markets, always so colorful and passionate about their products. I met a really interesting man today who sold me what could very well be the best raw honey I have ever tried. Orange blossom honey. Orange. Blossom. Honey. And trust, it’s even better than it sounds.
If you have yet to experience the beauty that is a farmer’s market, I highly recommend looking up the local market nearest you and checking out the magic for yourself. There is something so satisfying about knowing exactly where your food is coming from, and knowing it didn’t undergo an arduous, pesticide laden journey to get from the farm to your table. If that isn’t reason enough, fall is looming around the corner, people. We all know that means one thing: fall produce! In my humble opinion there isn’t a season better in the agricultural calendar.
So go to your local farmer’s market, pick yourself up a pumpkin, indulge in some apple cider, and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. And If possible, hunt down some orange blossom honey, you’ll be glad you did/sad it hasn’t been in your life until now.
