A Farmer's Market

Growing up in the south I've always, ALWAYS, gone to farmers' markets! Locally, Saturday mornings were the time when the farmers brought their wares to town to sell.  What items we did not have in our garden we bought at this market! My grandmother lived some 80 miles from her asthma specialist in Birmingham. Every trip to the doctor included a stop at the BIG farmers' market located off Finley Avenue! As a small child I can remember running up and down the aisles between rows and rows of fruits and vegetables! 

Today, we are lucky to have THE farmers' market to beat all farmers' markets within close driving distance!

(Anyone traveling I65 between Birmingham and Montgomery you need to stop! It's a wonderful space to rest, to eat and to shop!!)

Recently the junkin' road took my friend and me to Durbin Farms and all the wonderful sights and smells! YummmmmY!!

I will let you (yep, southern slang, let you!!lol) wander the aisles and enjoy...















Now how cool is this...pea--nuts, get ya pea--nuts!!


Great fun at the Durbin's Market !

Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!

Hi Jan,
Oh how I could smell those peaches. And LOVE that Cocca-cola case! What goes better with Coke than a handful of peanuts? I love farmers markets. Hubby and I always visit them when vacationing. We don't go to often when at home though. Isn't it funny, we don't frequent things in our own home town. Need to make a better effort. Thanks for letting me wander.

Nice post. Try going across the interstate to Peach Park. They have the most WONDERFUL peach fried pies. Served warm or boxed to go. A little bite of heaven.
