Home Away from Home: The Farmers Market

In Middletown, Rhode Island.

If we’re friends on Facebook, you know how much I love the local farmers market. I’ve been going there so long—my hair in full Bed Head—that I know these people and look forward to visiting with them. While my husband walks the dog in the little park outside, I work my way around the building collecting hugs and yummy things to eat. The farmers market is my happy place.

And if I find a farmers market when we are traveling, I cannot resist checking it out. I have visited them in more than one Irish town and definitely many American towns.

So you can imagine how delighted I was to stumble upon this article: How to Get the Most Out of Farmers’ Markets While Traveling. You should read the whole thing, but here are some quick tips:

  • Go early.
  • Buy what’s in season.
  • Consume it in the moment.
  • Food trucks? Yes!
  • Buy something to enjoy at home.

And if you can’t find an outdoor market—particularly in the winter—you can always look for upscale grocers to tempt your palate. Got a favorite market? I’d love to hear about it.
