Day 123: Shop at the downtown farmer’s market

3 May

Nearly every Saturday, there is a farmer’s market in downtown Tallahassee. Vendors sell fruits,vegetables, and even baked goods. There is also the obligatory jewelry stands and tie-dyed T-shirt vendors. The food itself is wonderful – much better quality than the local produce at a grocery store and you can leave feeling satisfied that you’ve done your part to support local farmers. There’s also plenty of variety, with farmers selling whatever is in season, which right now included peaches, squash, tomatoes and onions. Bring your own bags and plenty of cash, as most vendors don’t have credit card machines. It’s also a great place to bring kids, with a few booths that hawk goodies for kids, and musical entertainers. It has become a little bit like a mini-festival rather than a pure farmer’s market, which adds to its appeal for me because there was more to see and do.
