I fell a little bit more in love with Cincinnati after a recent trip to the much heard about farmer's market downtown -- Findlay Market.
Despite being located smack in the middle of an area of town even my ever-confident husband seemed nervous about leaving his Honda parked in, this mecca of fresh, delicious, and creative wares evoked various memories in my head. Good, wholesome travel memories of places like Pike Place Public Market in Seattle and Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, albeit on a much smaller scale.
So much fresh produce, but not only that: beer garden, bakeries, flowers, crafts...my little blogger head was spinning!
I couldn't resist indulging in an amazing freshly baked belgium waffle piled high with mouthwatering strawberries and whipped cream and a cup of gelato had me drooling before the poor guy served it to me. That good.
No counting calories on the weekend!
We even bought Colbie some organic dog treats. Spoiled hound.
Here are a few of the other things I couldn't resist purchasing...
Blackberries! This photo does not even begin to capture the plump deliciousness of these blackberries. YUM.
The colors were unlike what you find at your local grocer. Prices were better, too!
Had to snag a few ears of bicolor corn to throw in a pot that night.
Wherever it is you live in this world, I assure that somewhere near you is a farmer's market you will fall in love with. Find it. Buy local! :o)
