What’s In Your Basket?

Beautiful Garden Blossoms
The growing season of summer draws us outdoors. There's plenty to lure one into nature - beautiful garden blossoms, strolls along the ocean or an exhilarating hike. Many of us choose to design beautiful landscapes simply because spending time outdoors is treasured and hard to come by. Think about your favorite outdoor space or place and compare that to where you spend your time inside. In general, you might get an overall sense of feeling less confined. 
It's just great to be outside.
But one of the best kept secrets to open air and less confinement is readily available in almost every city and town - farmers markets. As Eric Schlosser, author of ‘Fast Food Nation’ reminds us, “There is a growing market today for local, organic foods produced by small farmers. And farmers' markets have played a large role in making that happen.” Many of these markets have expanded into more than fresh produce and locally grown to appeal and draw in a larger crowd. But browsing the carts in search of your treasured favorites is all part of the summer fun. And with such a growing trend, farmers markets are expanding beyond these seasonal months. Several large cities bring the farmers' market experience indoors during the cooler months as well. In places outside the United States, it's simply a part of life. 

Indoor farmers markets - simply a part of life.
Share your favorite farmers’ market or locally grown finds.
