Today's post started out as a nice giveaway from one of my awesome sponsors, where we hoped to get you excited about local, seasonal produce this spring that is bursting with nutrients — and it has evolved into much more. Last Saturday I asked Kent to go with me to downtown GR so we could check out the new Downtown Market. I'd heard great things about it and it is really cool in there — I can't wait to go back and spend more time. I ended up snapping loads of pictures and then decided to make a video so I could show you the whole thing. (I was a little rusty at making videos, it's been a while, so let me know what you think.)
Spring is the perfect time for a fresh new point of view, you know!
I hope you'll pledge to try something new with me, like falling in love with your local Farmers' Market (or Farmer!) — or maybe checking out a new farmers' market that you've never been to before; hopefully you'll bring reusable bags with you! It's a small but mighty step in a healthier direction.
Check out these farmers' market supplies mentioned in the video:
- Reusable shopping bag
- Stainless steel colander
- Insulated lunch bag personal cooler
- Fruit and vegetable brush
- Reusable produce bags
- Reusable cotton produce bags
