Holiday Inspiration

Plant starts 1

The holiday season is here and moving at a much quicker pace than I expected.  Shopping for that one person on your list that is a tad challenging…oh what to give to them?  Taking a walk around the Farmers’ Market this weekend I quickly came up with some unexpected ideas that had some merit.  Did you know that you can find soaps, lotions, and bath products from our fine vendors who specialize in soap making that use alluring scents like pumpkin pie, creosote, and  using ingredients like goat’s milk, and Emu oil.


For that cook in your life the market offers gourmet local olive oils and vinegars, mexican chocolates, fresh roasted organic coffee, delicious teas, local honey and artisan cheeses. Perhaps a gardener you know who likes to dabble in the dirt,  how about a garden pot filled with salad sprouts ready to grow into a great salad bowl, each market has vendors who have starter plants that tuck neatly into that special Mexican pot or if they already have a garden plot how about seeds for their spring planting!

Don’t forget our furry friends; take home a special treat for your favorite pet and those of your friends and neighbors.


You can find all of these truly wonderful gifts that I bet any person on your list would love. This year, celebrate all things local and what a better way than visiting the Farmers’ Market for that extraordinary and thoughtful gift.
