One of the things that I don’t really like about where I live is that it’s not particularly walkable. Sure, there are nice neighborhoods with sidewalks, so it’s not bad in that respect, but as far as actually walking to a destination, it’s not so great. There is a small downtown area, about a mile away, but there’s not much there, and, aside from an okay bar, not much to walk to. So, I got sort of excited when I saw a sign saying that every Sunday morning, they were going to set up a Green Market.
Jason, Murphy and I decided to walk up to the market and explore. You wouldn’t think I lived only a few miles outside of Atlanta. Looks like total small town, doesn’t it?
This was the first weekend of the market and, although there weren’t a ton of stalls, there were enough people there that I think there’s some potential for it to become larger as the summer goes on. Plus, King of Pops was there. You know it’s a legit market or festival when King of Pops is there.
Obviously, we had a popsicle. I had Pineapple Habenero and Jason had Mango Lassi.
The pineapple was good, but it could have had some more habenero. I couldn’t really taste the spice.
There was only one stand that had produce.
The rest of the booths had things like quinoa (we bought some), salsas, hummus, dog treats, organic biscotti, things of that nature. I hope that in the future, they have more fruits and veggies. I think they will.
We had a good time, but someone had an even better time.
Is there a farmer’s market near you?
