Jackson Hole, Wyoming has a wonderful town square – and it’s actually used for events. At Christmas it is heavenly with all the lights, especially in the elk antler arches at all four corners. (Elk antlers fall off naturally.) At this time of year a Farmer’s Market occurs every Saturday. It includes every kind of fruit and vegetable you could want, crafts, baked products – and doggies. What would a Farmer’s Market be without the doggies. Always perfectly behaved. And, of course, music. It is a wonderful folk event. I think I particularly connect with it because my parents were “truck” farmers in Missouri. We loaded our truck and went to sell on a street corner every Saturday morning during the season. First it was the plants that my parents started in greenhouses until they were ready to be set out, then it was produce. Looking back on it, it was an amazing experience. Hard, but I wouldn’t trade the memories.
Support your local Farmer’s Markets. They work hard at providing good produce for us.
