It’s finally farmers market season again. The farmers market feels like a warm hug, it’s so comforting to be surrounded by other plant freaks. Most other people don’t want to talk about plant varieties and how this year’s weather affected the peach trees. Yet people at the farmers market do! They want to discuss ways to use cinnamon basil and when is best to harvest microgreens. It’s seriously the BEST!
There’s a few things in life that just make me feel like my best self, the farmers market is right up there in the top 3. If you haven’t tired out a local market, do it! You’ll learn so much about local fruits and veggies and get inspired to use them in new ways in your kitchen. It’s a vegan jackpot.
If you’re not here to hear about my crush on the farmers market, Here are some links I’m enjoying from around the web this week. Happy Friday!
