The Farmer’s Market

I love going to the local farmer’s markets, but more so than not, I forget about them.  When I went over to Priscilla’s the other day, she reminded me about our local Farmer’s Market.   Making It Up As We Go  This season was a short season to begin with, and now there are only two more weeks left, but at least I finally made it.

The Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Broomfield has been home to the Broomfield Farmer’s Market for many years.

There was a little something for everyone, all brought in from local farmers and ranchers and local businesses.

There were food trucks just in case you got hungry while shopping.

A tamale truck  selling fresh, homemade tamales.  I have had these tamales too and they are so good.

Another stand was selling fire roasted hatch chilies.  YUM!

There was a stand selling bison products.  I bought a big bison ribeye for later.  Her freezers were full of all kinds of delicious bison products.

I used to coach their daughter Sydney.  Aside from all the fabulous goodies, one of the main reasons I went to the Farmer’s Market was to see Bree, Mike and Sydney, although I missed Sydney this time.

 

And of course there were plenty of fruits and vegetables too.

I bought a little bit of everything and brought home something for everyone.  Here is the bounty I brought home.  I had a good, healthy day at the Farmer’s Market.  I just love helping out the locals.  It is always a win/win for everyone in the community, plus it is almost always fresher and healthier too.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.
