Farmette1769's Blog

Our honey bees were having a great Saturday out and about. And, they let me stand at the front entrance to take photos without trying to sting me.

These were taken after one of my favorite Saturday outings – The Farmer’s Market. Whenever I go, I usually spend every last penny in my pocket. Everything is fresh and a lot of it is homegrown. You can get meat right from the livestock farmers.

There are plenty of fruits and vegetables,

flowers,

and seasonal items; like this weird pumpkin that is now gracing our front stoop with it’s awesome presence.

It was a nice cloudy day with threatening dark clouds that never produced rain. I got out walking in the humid, yet fresh, air. It was a busy work week and the markets allow me to stretch out some of the aches and pains that I get from hunching over my computer all day.

There is a farmer’s market in our town down the road that I like a lot, but it’s slim pickings after Labor Day when it becomes a tailgate market. I also like the Dallas, NC Flea Market that is not too far from here. There are a few Hispanic run produce hubs at that one that I just adore.

But today it was The Charlotte Regional Farmer’s Market. Their website fails to show just how great it is. They have four, huge, covered, open-ended buildings with a few cooked food vendors outside too. If you live in the area, it is a must visit for the Greater Charlotte Area.
