Farmer's Market Challenge - Day 1
This is what I came up with:
1) I will buy my produce from the Wednesday, Friday and/or Sunday farmer's markets.
2) I will not buy produce from a 'store' even if I run out.
3) I have made these exceptions: There are some items I feel I need to stay healthy (physically/emotionally), that I will never find at the farmer's markets like bananas and some seasonal special fruits like mangoes and ginger.
The point of this challenge is so that I can support the small farmers of my area, who I am happy to say, ROCK in the abundance of produce they bring! I will be able to get a wide variety of greens and fruits each week from them.
In 30 days I will only know what is available at the farmer's markets this time of the year, so I am hoping I will go longer period of time. I will only to go to them and not into stores for produce, unless I want or need something they won't have or for a special occasion, being mindful of the point of this challenge by defining 'special occasion' in the spirit of the challenge. I see this as a way to support local growers and live simpler by appreciating what is in front of me.
The Wednesday market opens at 3:00. I'll let you know what I find!
Update: Organic Iceberg Lettuce yay! that is such a treat! I love to do 'wedgies' -lol
I bought romaine, radishes, avocado, cucumber, plums, cherries, honeydew, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, celery, oranges, almonds
A good day!
