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!
