I wrote this article for www.centralvalleymoms.com but I’d thought I’d share here too 🙂 My goal this summer is to spend more weekends experiencing events and sights around our central California community. There are lakes and beautiful scenery an hour or less away from us and we haven’t seen any of it yet! (I pretty much go from school to baseball games/practice to the grocery store.)
A farmers market is the perfect opportunity to get out, enjoy this great central valley weather, and purchase beautiful locally grown produce and specialty foods.
It runs from May 10 through September 27, 2013 every Friday night from 5:30pm to 9pm on Pollasky St.
Take a look at these gorgeous vegetables we spotted on our first visit here last Friday!We are not from California so these farmers markets you guys have out here are AMAZING!!
This fresh herb booth smells insanely good!
Herbs are so expensive at the store. I think I might buy some and dry them myself next time I go. Have you ever done that?
There’s lots of fresh bread,,, Yum.
The balloon art guy was a big hit.
There’s live music too! Visit here to find out about tonight’s band.
I’m trying to get my kids excited about eating more fresh fruits and veggies, so this is a perfect place from them to sample new foods!
We came home with some fresh berries and kale.
Each morning I’ve been making a healthy smoothie with kale, blueberries, strawberry, almond milk, and protein powder. Buy a bunch of these berries, freeze them, and you don’t have to add ice! It’s a great breakfast.
I LOVE this sign so much and want it for my kitchen.. I spotted it for sale at Glorious Junk Days last weekend also in Old Town Clovis. That’s a great event too!
Have a great weekend!! Are you lucky enough to have a great farmers market where you live? What do you buy there?
