Farmers’ markets make my heart sing. They represent grocery shopping at its finest: unique local products, personally presented with creative flair.
The Tuesday market on Salt Spring Island is small, but we filled our bags and our arms with baked goods, fresh fruit and other goodies and the organic, freshly squeezed lemonade was a saving grace on a very hot day.
Market vendors are creative and artistic.
Market vendors are hard-working.
Markets engage all the senses (wine tastings are a definite plus at BC markets).
