Farmers Market Vendors Maintain Smiles Even in the Rain

Last Thursday and Saturday were sad days at the Farmer’s Market. It was cold and rainy.
Cold and rainy does not typically inspire patrons to come out and walk around to buy vegetables. If you did walk over to the Harris Pavilion or to Lot B, you could find many vendors, bravely sitting under the pavilion bundled up but maintaining smiles. Rain or shine, they’re out there.
I’ve come up a list of reasons why the Farmer’s Market is still awesome even when it’s cold or raining (or both):
-You have a good excuse to use your legs on a day when staying in bed feels like the right thing to do. Huzzah for being active!
-You can buy coffee at the Farmer’s Market. Cold problem: solved.
-Things like chili and soup require ingredients that are sold at the Farmer’s Market. Why not make yourself some amazing comfort food with the freshest ingredients?
-Vendors wake up very early and come with a smile on their face. If they can do it, so can you!
-Rain or shine, you should feed yourself local, fresh, and healthier food.
Fortunately, the weather is better this week. We do hope to see you out at the market! We’ll be there waiting for you!
