The weather couldn't have been better for the opening of the Emporia Farmers' Market. I volunteered at the kiosk and the kids worked as Veggie Valets. I brought home eggs, beef, sausage, onions and jam. I wanted to bring home a few more greens, but the goodies were already thinning out by the time I put my shopping hat on.
That's me, by the way, being interviewed on KVOE. Being on the radio was not on my agenda for the morning, but I guess I did okay. AFTER I did my best to pass the job off to anyone else... anyone? Anyone? Where did everybody go? Chuck Samples is a very nice guy and he did ask easy questions. None-the-less, I continue to cringe each time someone has said, "Hey, I heard you on the radio!"
Didn't really take pictures with the idea of sharing, so this isn't a very comprehensive overview. Just a few of the items available at yesterday's Market:
Lots of starter tomatoes, peppers and herbs if you are inclined to grow your own.
Apple wood and local honey.
Rain Barrels! I'm going to have to look into these.
