& Gratitude

I’m feeling very thankful for the farmers’ markets right now, and appreciating how much they feed us, not just in fresh foods and products, but in connections as well.


I love going to the farmers markets.  Over the Christmas break I was having serious withdrawals.  I deeply missed you guys.  It brings me great joy to see all of you and my fellow vendors again.  I especially like hearing how you’ve turned our meats into meals.  You’ll see my face light when I start talking about a good recipe or favorite hack.


Farmers markets are my social gatherings.  It’s like going to a high school dance. I feel like I’m asking the cutest girl onto the dance floor, and I’m hoping she’ll accept.  And once she does, I hope she tells all her friends that she had a marvelous time. Ok, that was a bit corny - but it’s true!  It’s a festive affair where I get to see all my friends and catch up on what’s going on in their lives.  And hopefully I get to spread a little cheer.  It is truly an honor knowing you’ve entrusted us with providing you and your family with healthy, delicious meats.


I get it, farmers markets are a bit unorthodox.  Really, who does their shopping in a parking lot?  Heaven forbid you get to talk to the grower.  The modern food industry ignores the natural order of things:  what’s in season, pest infestation, effects of weather - life and death.  Today, we can push a button and whatever we desire will show up on our porches. Sure, this is a wildly convenient way of life. But we are widening the gap that exists between the “how” and the “what”.  Does this honor our creator?


At the farmers market you get a real connection.  You see the calloused hands, the sunburnt cheeks - and I get to see your smiling faces!  I see your kids getting bigger and your mother moving slower.  I rejoice when you’re back after surgery, and I lament when I hear you got laid off. And I know that when the floods come or when coyotes attack, you’re thinking of us too. I know that you’re stepping outside the mainstream to support local growers and producers and I know you’re often paying premium pricing.  I appreciate this greatly.  But what I value most is YOU.


See you at the market!
