Well, it’s another Sunday morning. What are you going to do this time, sleep in until 2pm, order food and spend all day nursing that dreadful hangover, just like you did the past three Sundays? Or, are you finally going to wake up early for once, take your vitamins and haul your ass to the local farmer’s market for the ingredients to cook a healthy meal later? Yeah, we thought so… you don’t need those elitist heirloom tomatoes, your freezer-burned pizza rolls taste just fine.
Just kidding, farmer’s markets are great! Not only do your dollars directly contribute to supporting local farmers and their families, but you can get fresh produce and seasonal items, know where your food is coming from, and the prices are often more affordable. Not to mention, the food tastes better, and being presented with such a wide, colorful selection of goodies displayed on all those tables will surely encourage you to try something new. You also won’t find a community of growers and shoppers as eager to share their tips and recipes about all things food and cooking at a grocery store—at the farmer’s market, you’ll certainly feel the love.
If you’re a fan of these utopias of glistening fruits and veggies, an assortment of hummus in countless different flavors and endless rows of organic candles, you’ll surely be in favor of these farmer’s market tattoos. One thing’s for sure, all the health, nature and chef girlies will tell you that once you start shopping at the farmer’s market, you can never go back. So, get out there, go buy a gigantic bundle of spinach, and get a tattoo inspired by nature’s gifts to humankind to remind you to take the trip the next time you’d rather hit snooze.
