Stonginton Farmer's Market - An Independent Journey

I went to sleep Friday night excited at the prospect of being woken up by the pitter patter of highly energized feet early on Saturday morning but instead I found myself the sole stroller. I was thrilled at the idea of an uninterrupted shower....then was dressed....coiffed and still quiet. till sleeping at 8 a.m.? Wow, I guess I am on my own so off to the Stonington Farmer's Market I went. I love the entire process: grab your bags, cash, coffee mug, comfy shoes, barely brush your hair and try not to step in the doggy do-do that is all over the grounds. Please enjoy the photos and check out this site called Local Harvest where you can type in your town/state and it will list out all the local farms, farmer's markets and even restaurants & grocery stores that have organic/local products.

Love the goat's milk soap I bought from this loving couple at Beltane Farm

Now a little video from me: Yes, I know "what you are thinking Jen?" "Isn't it dangerous to be doing a video while driving?" Possibly. There was no one else on the road and I was using a tiny camera so my view was not obstructed so just enjoy the view and stop nagging me.

I live in Stonington, so let me know next time you come. We love the farmers' markets. In fact, that's where those strawberries in the Flickr photos came from. :)

BTW, there are other farmers' markets in Stonington. There's the one you went to on Sat. in the Borough, there's one on Tuesday, by the Quiambaug Fire Station off Rt. 1 on Old Stonington Road (near the A&P on Rt. 1) and there's one on Sunday, I think, on the Dennison property on Pequotsepos Road.
