Walking in the open air, sun shining bright, among locals who are also shopping for the weeks allotment of fruits, vegetables, and baked goods (because we’re all about saving time and we know baking that lemon loaf is going to be tedious, take time and make a whole lotta mess); it’s no surprise I love our local Farmers Market. I along with the many others at the market on Sunday appreciate and never take for granted local farmers and artisans. #supportlocal #shoplocal #buylocal #eatlocal
This Sunday we did exactly that, we stocked up our veggie supply, with bonus additions of lemonade mix via KIC’S Lemonade, a lemon loaf from Mom and Me Pies, pretzel and cookie by Gesundheit Bakery, and all natural body soap and a stain stick (ummm yes people, I promise to report back on this one) via Mountain Naturals. Something I left behind and am still losing sleep over are these adorable little pillow cases dresses from Lochs & Lambs. Such a perfect outfit for the babes with this heat we’ve been having. I love the concept behind the simplicity of their designs that and the fact that they’re up-cycled just has me smitten.
I love farmers market for the simply factor that Sofia thinks we are out and about on an adventure while I get errands marked off the list. Much better than her having to sit in a buggy while I pull from aisles and aisles of boxed goods. A productive yet fun morning had by all, including the fun little additions of my bestie Lindsay and her pup Mr. Nosey.
IN CASE you’re local and looking for something to do this upcoming Sunday, or any Sunday for that matter until October 25th, check out the Coquitlam Farmers Market, from 9am to 1pm.
