Visit to the Farmer’s Market

One of the great things about working in downtown Chicago is the access to all the wonderful restaurants and eclectic people.  So no one could have been more surprised than me to walk out of my building for lunch and find a farmer’s market set up right in the middle of Daley Plaza!  I was so excited that I forgot to eat lunch and instead went on a shopping spree that left me on a foodie high.  I got such a rush when I saw all of the fresh produce and food that I felt like a geek but hey, it’s the small things that make me happy 🙂  The only thing that stopped me, luckily, was my inability to carry any more bags.

Of course I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without taking a few pics!  I actually took these with my cell phone but they came out pretty good don’t you think?

A few people gave me weird looks when I got on my knees and started arranging fruits and vegetables so I could take a picture.  This nice lady was actually in line to buy tomatoes and she kindly stepped back while I took my photos, lol.  I didn’t know how to explain what I was doing so I just said thank you and moved on.

Aside from all of the fresh food, I was in awe of the beautiful colors.  Literally a rainbow of food, I hope I captured it adequately for you.

It’s almost the end of the summer so if there’s a farmer’s market near you make sure you visit and take advantage of the fresh produce that will only be in season for a little while longer.

 Stay tuned for part 2 of my visit to the farmer’s market.  I think they’re in town until October so watch out, here I come (with my DSLR camera this time)!
