A weekly trip to the farmer's market is one of our family's favorite spring and summer traditions. We go every Saturday morning that we are in town.
I remember being there the summer after Thea was born. I saw woman that we know - a mama of two small boys - looking cute and fresh in a pretty skirt. It was one of those early days of motherhood when I couldn't remember the last time I had showered. I honestly thought I might never be able to pull of "cute" again.
Of course, those days did pass, and now I find it fun to wear my own sweet skirts on market day.
Our first (and last) stop is always to see "Mr. Blues." Thea fell in love with his loud, soulful voice last summer and as soon as we arrive at the market, she can hardly wait to drop some cash in his bucket.
We love to wander slowly through the market, stopping to visit with our favorite vendors and other familiar faces. I can't tell you how much I love coming home with a big bag full of fresh veggies and other handmade goodness.
This week, the Richmond Waldorf School was there with their giant tub of corn kernels - a hit with the wee ones. Ours was no exception.
This year, we've been ending our morning at the market with breakfast burritos from Nate's Taco Truck. It has been especially fun for Thea, since she has recently outgrown her egg allergy. If you ask her what she had for breakfast yesterday, she'll tell you an "eggie burrrrito." Too cute.
