Farmers Market is back

The Roswell Farmer’s Market is back after the winter recess.  We made our first visit this weekend and were pleased with the food and artistry that was on display.  There is not quite as much fresh produce available yet but there was some great baked goods as well as many other hand made items.

This is one of those things that has become a weekend ritual and I look forward to going back many more times as the Summer comes on.  Also another nearby opportunity for some nice images.  Count me in!

Georgia Peaches are ripe and 97°-Must be Summer in Atlanta!

It’s really hot outside but a trip to the Roswell Farmer’s Market is a nice way to start the weekend.

So, it’s the weekend and I just got a new camera to try out.  Well it’s actually not “new” but I picked up a Nikon D7100 from my friend who just bought a D500.  Anyway, I wanted to go out and give my new baby a try.

Early Summer in Atlanta

We thought about several options for a short day trip but quickly realized – it’s way too hot out there!!  Yes, the forecast for the day was a high of 97 degrees (thats 36° C) and at 10:00 AM we were already at 94°.  I needed a choice which would give us something that would be in the shade and not take too long.  The obvious choice: the Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market which is just around the corner and is held on Saturday mornings from April thru October.

The market is a great attraction for locals to grab a cup of coffee and a nice bakery item for breakfast.  Get some fresh local produce, browse through a variety of crafts of just watch people and listen to live music which is there often.  The one thing that my wife and I almost always do when here, is get some peaches.

Peaches being in season is a sure sign that Summer has arrived.  We love getting this sweet natural treat and buying from local growers is definitely the way to go.  It was also fun just to visit with the family members who were here selling their farm produce.  This weekend, the peaches came from Carroll Farms located in Woodbury, Georgia.

Guess who’s in charge around here?

As much as we enjoyed the visit, we were feeling the heat pretty quickly and needed to get back in the air-conditioning before we melted into the asphalt of the parking lot.  The peaches are ripening on our kitchen counter now and I also brought home a very tasty Caribean Lime/Coconut cake.  We will need to go back and see what’s there next week if the whole city doesn’t go up in flames before then.
