Before we get started with this list of places that I am just discovering, I am not a vegan, not even close. Meat eater, but I understand and respect most other eating preferences. My tastes have expanded as I have gotten older, but I still go for the good ol' go-to standbys like chicken or chicken. Joking, of course, but not that far off. I can appreciate how good produce looks, smells, feels, and most times can tell you whether or not a particular fruit or vegetable is ready to eat or should be given a day or two.

With COVID happening, farmers markets, like most things, all but disappeared. You will be happy to know that farmers markets are alive and well and open for business. Hours are kind of weird for a farmers market sometimes, not always the usual type of business, not the usual type of hours. My mother would joke with me and ask me to go to the Farmers Market in our small town back in Kansas, knowing full well that the 6 AM to 9 AM business time was way too early for this guy who worked nights at the time.
