A visit to the farmers’ market

Every Saturday and Tuesday during the warmer months, Schaffhausen, Switzerland has a farmers’ market. I’d never had a market available so close to where I live so I was thrilled to find out and start buying and eating these fresh fruits and vegetables. I love being able to pick and choose exactly what apples I’d like to buy. Plus, this market has some of the best apple cider I’ve ever had! These are a few photos from my trip this past weekend which is the first time I’d been to the farmers’ market this year. I was a bit shy taking photos up close of people, but hopefully with time I’ll get used to it. This time around there were many stalls dedicated specifically to asparagus and flowers. Do you have a farmers’ market where you live? Do you visit it often?

i LOVE the farmers market! there are a whole bunch of them all throughout california. back home in san francisco, they had a farmer’s market on my block every sunday morning. they closed the street in front of my house and had about 30 stands from local farms, fisheries, bakeries, & one flower stand. i loved opening my door to such amazing things, grabbing coffee and hanging out with my neighbors on the street {and their cute dogs}. oh! and they always had a local musician playing live {a couple times my friends got to play}. it was amazing!

in our new neighborhood in LA, we have a big farmers market on friday afternoons, which we still go to for local/organic produce, but it’s just not quite the same. i love exploring all the different markets though. it’s so fun!

I love your photos, Eva! Walking around the farmer’s market is one of my very favorite things to do. NYC has so many that are amazing.

This market is great, Eva! You have a much better mushroom collection there than we do. Hitting the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings is one of the highlights of my week. I love talking with the vendors and trying new things and watching the seasons change.

I love Columbus’s Farmer’s Market. They’ve got everything there! Unfortunately it doesn’t open until June πŸ™
