Naturally I focused on the food...lots of certified organic, free range, grass fed...in other words, pesticide and other additive free foods all from right here in the valley. Long gone are the days when the only organic foods I found were in health food stores and were, puny, shrivelled looking things.
As I've mentioned before, what would a Nova Scotia Saturday Market be without some fantastic music.
And, food isn't just the freshest, tastiest produce, eggs, meat and fish to take home and prepare...it's also to munch right here, right now.
...to go with some Fair Trade Coffee (three different stands to choose from)
But that's for another day, today I couldn't resist the fresh corn before we headed out to another favorite market of mine.
Hennigar's Market is between Wolfville and Kentville and you can find lots of local fruit and vegetables like these
crisp yellow and purple sweet peppers
What's your favorite market that focuses on local fare?
All summer I'll be working with the Hellmann's & Evergreen Foundation Eat Real Eat Local Campaign. You can find out how to do your part at the EatRealEatLocal website. Hellmann's will donate 25 cents for every time you talk about real food on blogs, in emails, twitter or facebook. Just add #realfood . Hopefully they'll be donating $25,ooo to the Evergreen Foundation by the end of September.
