The post below is about a tiny little town, Anahuac, who use to have a small but fun Farmer’s Market. I was lucky enough to participate and wanted to share a slice of the past with you. If you have a farmer’s market near you, ask, beg, plead your parents to bring you. There are so many cool things at a farmer’s market!!
Whew, we survived the heat and now we’re happy to say, Fall is finally here! We had a great morning yesterday at the Anahuac Farmer’s Market…a cool 55 degrees and sunny-a gorgeous day! Vendors were there selling fresh yard eggs, homemade fried pies, fresh veggies, homemade jams, grass-fed longhorn beef, caramel apples and ginger-pumpkin muffins. Lots of fun, can’t wait for the next one!
Speaking of fall, we’re easing into this season’s finest: pumpkins, apples, stews, soups, and such. The holidays are on our minds too…never too early to start planning.
