Every Wednesday morning, usually starting in mid-August, there is a Farmers' Market here on main street Oberlin. Even though we have our own garden it is still fun to see the fruits of labor of other people. Recipes are shared, weather is discussed and new seed varieties shared. Wouldn't it be exciting to go to a big city market and look at all the exotic fruits and vegetables? Now that I'm older my priorities are different. I know exactly what I need. I appreciate the changing of the seasons which is reflected when the market begins. Fall is around the corner. There is coolness in the air. How do you celebrate the seasons? Don't pass by a Farmers' Market....thump a melon, smell the tomatoes, touch a summer squash.
