{summer fun} farmer's market

Summer has sadly come to an end and I thought it was about time to start our Summer fun recaps. This year I made a conscious effort to try to document some of our Summer activities. It's always nice to look back and remember all the fun things we did and also have something to look forward to during the long, cold winter months. Until next year Summer!

One of the things I enjoyed the most while working in the city was Union Square’s Farmer Market. My subway station was right in the middle of the market so it was inevitable to browse around the stands either before or after work, either to get a raspberry coffee chocolate cake for breakfast {it was really a mini cake, and yes I still remember it because it was that good!} or to grab some flowers or another little baked good to take home.

In all my time living in the suburbs, where there are many local farmer markets, I have to say I’ve never been to one {I know, shame on me}. Well, I decided to change that and plan a visit to the farmer's market with the whole family.

We chose a day that M came relatively early from work. We wanted to walk there {about 20 min walk}, but this was at the beginning of July when it was way too hot. We also had planned to grab something there for dinner, but again it was too hot and there were not many shady spots. And eating while your sweating, well, it’s not fun.
 

Even though it didn’t turn out as planned, it was great to browse the market with the kids. Of course this market was little compare to the one in Union Square, but the fresh fruits and vegetables, the  yummy baked goods, the beautiful flowers, even some music, they were all there. We didn’t have dinner but we enjoyed some fresh squeeze lemonade and some salty pretzels. We'll definitely go back, especially now that the weather is cooling down, and hopefully we'll make it a weekly habit and a way to spend more quality family time.


To everyone in the US, happy Labor Day!
