With temperatures dipping into the frigid digits, I thought it’d be time to showcase some of my favorite images from one of my favorite summer activities. I have to take the memories of the warm, happy season where I can get them, right?
One of my favorite things to do in new cities is explore their Farmer’s Markets. Not only does it give me a chance to see the city on a more micro scale, but I get the chance to support some of the smaller businesses in the area, usually pick up some coffee from the smaller cafes in town, and learn more about the community itself. When shopping at my local markets, it gives me a way to learn more about some of the healthy living initiatives the community is doing, and, of course, I can get produce straight from local farmers. Plus, for whatever reason, most markets now have a cupcake vendor – and it’s hard to turn down a delicious cupcake on after a relaxed walk through the markets.
Even if you’re not much for the markets, you have to admit that the atmosphere and lovely colors can take you straight back to the nice, relaxing weekend days of summer!
