Today, Colin, Rima, and I went out to the Farmers' Market in Government Center to get local, fresh, and absolutely delicious food. In addition to standard fruits and vegetables, some of the vendors at the Farmers' Market sell jellies, jams, honey, meat, flowers, and baked goods. Throughout the harvesting season, I've been to the Farmers' Market almost every week to stock up on fresh food. I don't know if I'm biased towards local food, but I swear, it tastes better
than store bought food. It is always fresh and so colorful! Another bonus--because it hasn't been sitting in a refrigerated truck for 24+ hours to get shipped--food from the farmers' market almost always lasts longer than store-bought food. Unfortunately, the market will be closing in late November and won't re-open again until late spring. I wonder how my roommates would feel about starting a compost bin in our kitchen and a hydroponics
operation in the bathtub...
Jellies, Jams, and Honeys, OH MY!
