To Market, To Market

Saturday means market day!  The market has been dwindling for the past month and today is the last "full-day" market of 2011.  There will be a few "half-day" markets in November and a Christmas market in December but, after that, my groceries will be a little less local until spring.

Here are a few of the things I will miss:

Apples (oh, the apples are delicious right now!),
onions, pain au chocolat from my favourite baker,
grapes, carrots, fresh fig jam and lettuce.  

There are many things I love about the fall and winter, but the closure of my neighbourhood farmer's market is not one of them!
