AtlantaMorningside Farmers Marketproduce 6 Comments Nice pics! Never been there… Quite the talented little man! Thanks. He makes me proud! What impresses me is the diversity and quality of the produce. And yes, there were roadside stands when I was a kid, but you would be lucky to get any tomato other than a beefsteak. Bok Choy? No way. I know people pine for the good old days but I can leave canned spinach and frozen strawberries goodbye. FnS. PS – and yes, really really nice pictures! No kidding. As a kid we had a huge garden on our 8 acre spread and while impressive, it didn’t come close to what you find at these local markets. Closest to an heirloom I remember is my grandfather pushing his beefsteaks until they split – as much as I loved tomatoes, I thought that was gross. The only difficulty I have with these kinds of markets is “eating in the moment”. I’m a spontaneous cook, so if I buy too much – it tends to go bad. Otherwise, you have to be prepared to preserve what you buy – can, freeze, pickle, etc. I suck at planning that far ahead, so I usually only buy small quantities. Thanks for the compliment – my son is getting a big head! Beautiful shots! Buy that boy a camera! Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Name* Email* Website Comment Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
