This is what adults sometimes do on a Friday night.

I know where my food is coming from, and usually I am buying it from the exact same person who plucked it out of the ground that day, and 3. it is organic & pesticide free. The Vernon farmer's market is one of my favorite weekly stops, and Andy and I love having a well stocked fridge full of veggies, so after work on Friday night we went, and it was glorious. And well, my produce bag is pretty snazzy too. Andy has been getting the weekend nights off, and doing things together apart from the "regular" dates feel so much more special, not to mention fun. Wait, did I just relate going grocery shopping to a fun date? Yes, I sure did. Ahh, growing up; it is pretty damn fun. If you have a farmer's market in your area (and unless you live under a rock, you will), you need to go and see what all the fuss is about. In Vernon here it's Monday & Thursday mornings, and Friday's from 3-7. If you hear a girl "ooh"ing and "ahh"ing over the different colors of zucchini, that would be moi ;)
