Today, I finally went to the local farmer’s market. I’ve been meaning to check it out for months now, but I didn’t follow through until today. It was small—two dozen stands would be a generous estimation—but that just reinforced the tight-knit community atmosphere.
Admittedly, going to a farmer’s market usually appeals more to me in theory than in practice. Small talk with vendors and other patrons pushes me out of my comfort zone, and it’s easy for awkwardness to get in the way of the experience. It’s usually worth it, though, and today was no exception. Spending time outside—albeit in a bank parking lot—supporting local businesses is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
