If you're fortunate enough to have a local farmers market where you work and/or live, then congrats to you! Make sure then that you visit it and visit it often.
Well, I'm lucky enough to not only have a local downtown farmer's market in town, but it's actually only 4 blocks from my office. So, I decided to take a quick break earlier this evening and stroll on down there and see what was fresh. Uh, just about EVERYTHING! I mean, that IS the whole idea isn't it?
I tasted a few different products such as black bean spicy hummas, garlic marinated olives, and some fire-roasted corn on the cob. Before I left I ended up purchasing some freshly picked sweet strawberries, a loaf or cranberry-pumpkin bread, and some Italian pizza bagels.
While walking back with my bag of tasty goodies, I came upon a squirrel drinking out of a puddle of water that a sprinkler had created. I watched a few moments and then as I started to walk closer to him, he darted up a nearby tree, but only seemed to go far enough out of reach, but still remained close enough to either head back down to the drinking hole, or perhaps could smell what I had and wanted to wait and see if I'd be leaving any food behind. Either way, I took out my trusty iPhone 4 once again and snapped a quick photo and I think he knew what I was doing because he just sat there while I snapped a few photos.
I really enjoyed my little trip to our Downtown Lodi Farmers Market this week, and I'm looking forward to visiting it again next week since the weekly event ends this month until next year. So, check your local events calendar and see if you have a farmers market in your area and go see for yourself what goodies or wildlife you might find.
Also remember that we not only have great deals on homes for sale in the Lodi and Stockton area local real estate market, but we also have great local events as well. Lodi is a beautiful place to live, work, and shop.
