Well we have started that tradition again, but with G in tow this time. It’s so great to just walk around with G. We go super early – usually after he eats at 7am. Just so easy to get up and going, especially since it can get really busy the later you wait (we made the mistake of going at 10am once – BAD idea). And we walk around and look at all the produce and some of the vendors. I love how creative some of them are with how they arrange their booths with the produce so beautifully displayed. Makes me want to buy it even more. We always comment about the pan flute vendor who has been there since we were kids and never seems to age. We debate which booth we should get tomatoes or lettuce from.
Our new favourite is the 100 mile vendor, it’s nice to support local growers and know that our food hasn’t been flown in. We laugh at the fresh strawberries weeks before Ontario strawberry season has started, and the pineapples we find in some vendors! PINEAPPLE? Really we live in Ontario, where did you get a local pineapple – oh wait – they’re from California.
I’m always tempted by the fresh cut flowers, or the plants; and then I remember that I don’t have much more space for plants at our house and just take a picture to remember them.
It’s been great to add Gray into the mix. It’s nice to be adding to our Saturday morning ritual and starting to make memories with Grayson included too.
