It’s almost that time again…the seasonal opening of our farmer’s market! If you’re fortunate to live in a climate with year round open air markets, I envy you. I’m always on the hunt for really good ones- especially those with more than just produce & flowers. Since our local farmstand doesn’t open until July, I would love to find a favorite market for every day of the week. So far, plans include the Wheaton French Market on Saturdays, Burr Ridge Market on Thursdays, and the (once or twice a summer) trip to the Madison Wisconsin Market at the Capitol. Which markets are your favorites? Heading to Austin, Texas soon, any recommendations?!
Regardless of which market I go to, I always carry at least three bags: my large mesh bag for veggies and potatoes, my drawstring sack for fruits, and my recycled t-shirt bag for all the other goodies (yes, basil jack cheese guy, this means you!) I find along the way.
These multi-purpose bags are machine washable (cold, air dry!) so they’re great not only for the market, but for sandy beach toys, pool gear, and running errands around town. And they’re on special this weekend!
Daily Green Special: Purchase three “market bags” and receive a free Eco-Lips Classic SPF lip-balm for free. Protect those lips while you’re hitting the sunny market. Just write “market” in the checkout notes and we’ll add the free lip balm to your order. Offer valid until Monday’s post. Happy Weekend!
