What a farmer's market! That's paradise. My problem is, I would buy more produce than I could cook. BTW, hope you're watching the road while you're driving and video-blogging.

While living in St. Louis years ago, I came across there farmer’s market which was two square blocks of market. One spot even had haircuts. They had a building in the middle of the market for the butcher and every kind of meat possible could be purchased. There was a portion of the building where aquarium fish were for sale. It was the biggest market I’ve ever seen anywhere. It really looks like you are in your element when cruising the farmer’s markets. It’s about time for the markets here to start cranking up with the farm Spring produce. Most of the vegetables won’t be coming in until the middle of July. Be safe and enjoy your travels.

Hey! I was just there in September. I used to go eat at Thomas's every week. I grew up in Riverdale, Ga.
