I have mentioned that I live in an area where there are several Amish communities within driving distances of less than an hour. There are more Amish stores available to me if I want to drive less than two hours away. However, nestled quietly in a itty-bitty town (meaning only 3 stores about 10 minutes away) not very far from the military compound is an Amish Farmers Market. The local Amish community all in the area of the quiet military compoud all contribute to this little market.
Today, we spent the morning gathering our fruit and vegetables while talking to this little guy, whose name is Christian. Look closely, he is sitting in the sweet corn bin.
The Children really enjoy going into the Farmer's Market. They secretly have their reasons for doing so though. The little Gentleman's job is to help me fill up a bag of green beans and he is always adding more tomatos to my little bundle.
The Little Man is to pick out peaches and the potatoes.
The Little Lady holds the Little Miss so I can gather the corn. You can often find her trying to get glimpses of the horses in the back where they park their buggies.
Both girls are forever admiring the beaded jewelry that the little Amish Children make to sale at the market.
I admire all the preserves and bake goods! I could do this all on my own but when you have it all done around the corner it is easy just to slip in and pick up what I need. Eventually, I will have to get out my canning items but the past several years I have enjoyed the opportunity to cheat!
Beloved probably thinks that I have forgotten how to make Ultimate SWEET salsa!
But, I am sure I haven't!
