Lily and I headed down to the Farmer’s Market Saturday morning to do a little shopping for the house and for the restaurant. Honestly, we grow enough of our own now and our freezers are well stocked with meat so there really isn’t much I need to buy. I would not miss a market however. Lily and I ran into 12 people who we stopped and talked to. That would never happen at Kroger. There is a real sense of like-minded community that comes along with the market. It is more than a fresh air supermarket. What our high-tech, uber-mobile lives we have lost the sense of being a part of a community. I consider many of the farmer’s my friends. I have learned a lot from them and enjoy their company. Being able to shake the hand of the people who produce your food is a powerful thing.
