Growing up in the small town of Blairsville in the mountains of North Georgia, I had access to all of nature’s fruitful offerings. My mother has quite the green thumb so there was no shortage of tomatoes, green beans, zucchini or squash in our home. Even with 9 mouths to feed. Yes, NINE. That excludes my father, who wasn’t interested into vegetables at that time in his life–those are two completely different stories that I’m not getting into today… another time!
For now I’ll share my farmer’s market finds with you. The Ponce City Market Farmer’s Market takes place every Tuesday in the Shed off the BeltLine from 4pm-8pm. I always see it, but am usually going for a run, or day drinking, but today I decided to stop by and even dragged my boyfriend along. Excited to see some homegrown options from nearby farmers and some stuff not to far from where I grew up. I of course stopped to smell the wild flowers and pet a few dogs, and purchased some peaches and a jar of raspberry pepper jelly. Successful day. Below are some photos from mt finds!
