Not a market, but yesterday we went to a local farm and got eggs, peas, corn, and white string beans.

I've wanted to go to a farmers market but nobody wants to go with me :/ well except my kids who go everywhere with me. I just figured it would be a funner experience with a friend or.someone else.

Yes. We have one on Sundays that I love to go to. I was there this past Sunday and got a case of yukon gold potatoes, 9 green peppers, several pounds of red potatoes, cherry tomatoes, yellow squash, a cantaloupe, a few cucumbers and I think that's it.

How awesome that you can buy directly from the farm.  Is it close by or do you have to drive a bit to get to?  We have a farm store that is about 20 minutes away, I wish we lived closer.

Wow, $300 it must have some history to it.  I don't know much about antiques so I wouldn't want to buy it because I don't know if its really worth that price.   I rather go to Home Goods or a thrift store to find a similar mirror for $39.99.

It's fun with the kids too.  My little one loves to try the samples and help pick out fruit.  I totally get it is more fun with a friend because you can look, shop and talk about what you can make with the what you are purchasing.
