Saturday has arrived again and with it a new chance to visit one of my new favourite places, the farmer’s market! Although I have been visiting these markets for a while, only until recently have I started to fully appreciate the beauty of the community gathering, the freshness of the produce, and the excitement of indulging on a new treat never tasted before. I recall how much of a hassle it was, as a kid in Colombia, having to stop playing with friends to accompany my grandmother to the market…fortunately I have grown up!
Today I would like to share with you a small collection of photos from some of the recent farmer’s market that have caught my attention: The “Mercado Municipao” in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with its electric atmosphere and filled with perfectly displayed product. The Farmer’s Market at Union Square, being an oasis of freshness in the middle of bustling Manhattan. And, the more quaint and historic St. Jacob’s Farmer’s Market, with the special touch of the mennonite tradition.
More markets to come…stay tuned!
