I love becoming a regular at the market. It is so fun to know which guys sell the best stone fruit, who has delicious heirlooms, and where I can buy that amazing bag of lettuce that never seems to end and always stays fresh. I enjoy getting a great deal or extra sample of delicious paratha. And I really love seeing the same smiling faces week after week.
I am super lucky to have a fantastic market in walking distance on Saturday mornings, but if I happen to miss my market, I know another market is nearby and waiting for a visit. For a great resource to find a market near you, check out LocalHarvest.org
