Market time!

Going Green Mama has been bribing her kids all week long with a trip to opening day of her local farmers market!

Good morning Boothers,

I'm hoping the arrival of May is just as exciting for you as it is for our family. We're done with March winds and especially our extended April showers, and we're ready to move on to some May flowers - or at the very least, some planting!

Our first farmers market opens this week, an exciting event for our children that they've waited for for some time. My oldest misses commisserating with the characters she's met: the Pepper Guy who always sneaks her some plants or peppers for her dad, the grandmotherly type who gives her jelly bean prayers, the mom who somehow brings her three daughters to sell organic produce, baked goods and other endeavors.

We're excited about our market time, and hope you are too.

Which brings me to my question: I'm considering setting up a Saturday monring farmers market carnival to share what's growing in your area and great recipes you've stumbled on during the week. Please post if you're interested in participating, and we'll get started!

In CO we're still a good month away from any farmer's markets being open. But, I'd love to see what's going on around the country.

I would totally be in. Basically I really want to post about our market haul & local recipes each week... this would legitimize my obsession :)

I'd be interested - we're in WI, so yeah, it will be a good month before we are up and running too...

Oooh, I'd love this! Many of my local markets are opening this week or next. I'd love to encourage other people to check out their farmers markets!
