With the emphasis these days on fresh and local, farmers markets have popped up all over. Here in Houston, there is one someplace on any given day, quite a contrast to a few years ago when the only market was on the north side of town and not all of the goods were local.
In other countries, markets are commonplace
and fill the air with their aromas,
some not so pleasant.
Some offerings are exotic, not always recognizable to this traveler,
while others are the tried and true with honest to goodness flavors lacking in shipped fruits and vegetables.
Here in Houston, locally grown produce is side by side
I especially like the Indian foods, so spicy and good. They make me think of my daddy who would have said, “It tastes like something made out of something.” He would have been right!
Tell me, do you have a local farmers market and what special treats do you find there?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
