Why we Love the Market!

FarmersMarket“The sight of stalls piled high with locally grown food, the smell of flowers and freshly baked bread, the sound of conversations between friends and new acquaintances – farmers markets are so much more than just places to buy fruits and vegetables. In addition to supporting small farms and artisans, boosting local economies, and providing fresh seasonal food, farmers markets are considered by many to be the new town square. They offer, as they did in the past, a gathering place for diverse groups of neighbors to meet and mingle and to share news, recipes, and stories – in short, to create a new sense of community.”

Yes, this pretty much describes why we love the Morrison Farmers’ Market (text from the back of the new USPS commemorative stamps celebrating farmers markets).
