Farmer’s Markets Along the Road

One of the things we look forward to when traveling is to check out the local Farmer’s Markets.  You can really get a feel for a place by how many and what type of people come out for the event!

Here we find ourselves with luck at the Arcata Farmer’s Market in Humbolt Co., Ca.

This is actually the second time, we’ve managed to hit this particular market, and I must say, Arcatians, (and I assume local folks from Eureka and elsewhere) really like to have fun at their market!

Besides all the really local produce and beautiful flowers, there is music to enjoy, (a steel drums and bass combo today ) dancing, hooping, face painting, and gathering in the town center.

We bought an assortment of young zucchini  and a basket of blueberries, then went across the street to a local coffee shop and enjoyed a fantastic latte and fruit star while watching the show!
