The Wake Forest Farmer’s market continues despite the multiple days of triple digit temperatures. The passionate farmers and the dedicated consumers make this market come to life every Saturday from 8am to 12pm. Our market feature today is the great lady who coordinates, modifies, and keeps up with all of the vendors at the market each week. Robin Hendricks is the market manager who amounst the juggliing of the market vendors and info. also works as an artist with concrete and various powder mixtures. Robin is very knowledgeable in the workings of the community and an absolute delight to know. Please stop by the “Robin’s Nest” booth and say hello to Robin next Saturday. She has been very gracious in providing watermelon the past two Saturdays.
What a wonderful day to venture to the Wake Forest Farmer’s Market! There were tomatoes, eggs, watermelons, blueberries, peas, and butterbeans everywhere. Many other items were there as well. I found a new type of Chard at this week’s feature vendor’s booth called purpetual spinach chard. This is a very tender type of chard that is worth experimenting with. The only way I have used it thus far is in my green smoothies, which are quite tasty! 🙂 The young lady working the Enda Lee’s booth has her own food blog called “a-single-serving”. Here Anne tries to educate us on different foods, herbs, and single dining. Anne is doing much of the same things at the Edna Lee’s booth each Saturday. Herbs such as ginger and tumeric are for sale and if asked she will offer gardening advice. Also available at the Edna Lee’s booth is some of the best pound cake around! Other produce items ready for purchase are peppers, tomatoes, plants, etc. Stop by the Edna Lee’s booth the next time you are at the market and say hello to Anne. You’ll be gald you did! 🙂
I have always been one to exercise in the morning usually before starting in on any other tasks. This means that I am always exercising on an empty stomach and I thought that contributed to my weight loss since I did not have any new carbs to burn. A recent study suggests my old belief may be incorrect. In fact, I may even be dipping into my protein stores. I think it’s time to do some experiments and let my body tell me the truth.
