The Farmers Are Back!

We were finally able to go to the farmers market today, and purchase local produce. Down To Earth and KYV farms joined forces, and had a whole array of vegetables to offer: Kabocha and Calaba├ža squashes, Zuquini, Yellow Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, Cucumber, Bok Choi, Okra and flowers from their fields. I took a folding shopping cart, and filled it with vegetables for $26. All local, fresh, organic. No middle man, no cross-country trip, no packaging, and best of all: you can still see the dirt on the vegetables, and know exactly where that dirt comes from: Jacksonville.
