I like the Sunday farmers market because parking is easier and I get what I need quickly. I also have more opportunity to talk with the vendors and discover things I might have missed otherwise.
For example did you know that DeyDey’s Best Beef Ever runs their trucks on vegetable grease fuel? They are happy to take donations of used cooking oil. Just pour your cooled oil into an empty container and take it their booth at the Sunday market!
Yesterday we dropped off two quarts. We also stopped at the Healing Grounds Nursery booth to give Oscar Carmona a collection of pots we had saved from plants that we’d bought and planted.
He can also get you started composting with worms.
My other recent discovery is the soap at the Joëlle Olive Oil booth. It’s pure Castille soap (made with olive oil… originally from Castille, Spain) that lathers well and comes in a variety of fragrances as well as fragrance-free. I bought myself a Ginger Lime soap and gave several others as Mother’s Day gifts. It’s a hard soap that will last longer than softer soaps and has an elegant beveled edge.
If you haven’t been to the Sunday market, it’s definitely worth a morning walk.
