The farmers market is a great place to have a dialogue with your kids about where our food comes from; who grew it or made it, and how much labor and expertise goes into getting it to the table; it could be a great discussion of work ethics. It could also be a great place to discover likes and dislikes, and introduce new foods. Or learn budgeting; do you want that crepe, or a bunch of perfect peaches, or a pastry from Loic? Whatever the discussion, I just love to see the little kids learning how to shop & eat organic & local. This sweet little shopper is from Sunday.
