The Farmers' Market Next Door

Jason likes his food.  Three chow-related entries in a row.  Well, what can I say?  There's nothing more positive than not being hungry.  And if you can eat well, and locally in the process, all the better.

We live roughly 300 feet from a year round farmers' market.  The Waverly Farmers' Market is open every Saturday from 7am until noon.  Its size ebbs and flows with the seasons, but it's always there, and of course the produce available changes over time.  Right now we're heading into the boom season, and Kate and I have vowed to start taking more advantage of it.  In fact we plan on walking over as soon as we both finish our entries (I wouldn't be at all surprised if Kate's entry is on this same topic.)

Living in the city, at least this part of the city, has its advantages.  We haven't been availing ourselves of all of them lately.  Starting with the farmers' market is a good way to get back into city life.  Fresh veggies and fruit for snacking and cooking.  Great scones and other breakfast items for a light morning meal.  Good times.

Now I'm hungry and this entry is finished.
