To this day no matter what market I go to or what country it’s in I have similar feelings, being there is special. The ability to get my food from the people that produce it is a privilege I cherish.
I buy what tempts me, always more than I thought I needed, and always money well spent. I walk away laden with the ingredients that will nourish us for the week, a big smile on my face and already looking forward to my next visit.
