A Tale of Acai & Farmer's Market

Monday, March 18, 2013

Several weeks ago, a couple friends and I ventured out for a leisurely morning at our local farmer's market. First stop, of course, was breakfast. Acai bowls are our very favorite and so it was only right to start our day off with a delightful stop at Backyard Bowls. If you've never visited, you must! You'll never be the same. Bonding and commiserating over breakfast is a great way to start the day. The only way to go, actually.

Next stop, farmer's market. Since it's held several times throughout the week, and all in different locations, it took us a short bit to navigate our way. Suffice to say, it took three girls and three smartphones to find the way. Yes, for the very first time in our lives, we were that group of girls huddled together, all on our smartphones and completely silent. Based on the snickers from bypassers, we clearly were an amusement. I'm sure they thought we were texting each other. Glad we could provide the comic relief, but we were on a mission! Finally, destination reached and we were in love. The deepest love that one can have for fruits, veggies, etc., without having grown them ourselves. Sometimes, there's nothing better than walking down the street with beets, carrots, kale, chard, cilantro, and much more, sticking out every which way. Happy and content, we made our way back home.

Do you visit your local farmer's market? It's a game changer.
