A Farmer’s Market

It has been a whirlwind of a week! I’ve been away for a little bit, but I am so excited to catch up with you all during this week’s hop. One of my favorite stops on our visit was the Piedmont Triad Farmer’s Market in North Carolina.  It was fabulous! We tasted and bought so many wonderful things.
The blackberries were amazing-some tart and some sweet, a surprise in every berry.
Rows and rows of tomatoes
 Abundant blooms were irresistible.
 Fresh picked southern peaches
Delicious blueberries form a parade
We purchased a few “Faith Deer” from a man who lost everything in an accident.
 He hand carves these to help get his family back on their feet.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • All that fruit looks delicious! Yum! I want to reach through the screen and grab some of it :)

  • That produce looks amazing! I'd probably eat my way through!

    Wow, the produce is beautiful! I may have to make a trip down there! To think I only live an hour or so away, and have never been! That may have to be remedied soon!

  • What a delicious looking market. And i enjoyed finding City Boy Hens through the hop last week.

    • Aren't they great? I love meeting new chicken keepers too!

  • The market looks wonderful. We love going to Farmer's Market every Saturday for our fresh produce, meat, cheese, etc. Yesterday the market came to us. I was teasing a friend the other day about how mad I was for closing her produce shop in our neighborhood. She showed up with fresh picked corn, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.

    • How lucky were you! What a blessing!

  • Everything looks delicious. What brings you to North Carolina? I don't live far from the farmers market. It"s a great addition to Greensboro. I love your blog. I have learned so much about chickens. I'm starting another little flock of my own after a recent tragedy of my first little flock. Please check out my blog. Repurposed4life.blogspot.com. Hope you'll visit North Carolina again soon.

    • Thank you. So glad to hear you are starting out with another small flock. New beginnings are wonderful. We were visiting family in the area and we never miss the market when we are down there.
