Green LettuceThe Ukiah Farmers Market. What a great place to meet friends every Saturday morning!  A cup of coffee and we’re walking through the tables of locally grown, fresh produce, and made goods. My husband reminded me of a scene in Argentina. Once a week a grandfather walked by with his grandson in hand to buy local fresh produce out of a neighbor’s garage.  Friends stopped to talk, connect, smile, debate, laugh, pick up some fresh veggies and strengthen community ties. I thought about the gift that grandfather was giving to his grandson weekly connecting the two of them as they connected with their community. I was also impressed that the grandfather walked at the grandson’s pace discovering the world with each step.

Grandfathers, grandsons, discovery, connecting, community, fresh locally grown produce, friends…

It is a different pace of shopping. For those of you who have not been there or haven’t been there recently I invite you to check it out.  According to Scott Cratty who organizes the Ukiah Farmers Market, business has slowed this winter.
