A New Love: The Farmer's Market

Last Thursday Caleb and I were finally able to do something we haven't been able to do all year --hit up our local farmer's market! Here where we live, the farmer's market runs all year round, but of course it's on Sunday mornings while we're at church, hence why we haven't gone ever. But during the spring and summer our town also has the farmer's market on Thursday nights, which still proves to be difficult to go with work and our church community group, but we were finally able to make time for it last week and can I just say I loved it! I had never been to a farmer's market before, but when I got there it just reminded me of a cleaner, classier version of Indian markets mixed in with a carnival feel with booths all around and smell of barbeque meat was in the air. It was also an awesome opportunity to officially test out my new camera! I was able to get my new 60D all charged up in time for the evening and Caleb and I spent the evening taking photos together! That was especially fun. Here are some of the photos from the evening. 

Isn't our place cute. We're the one in the middle.
What's great is that the Thursday night farmer's market is seriously right down the street from our place. I think we'll have to make this a weekly thing to get our produce at :)
I think lighting in markets is spectacular. Photographing people and their produce always seems to be the best in open markets.
After finally getting organic strawberries, I don't know if I can ever go back.

Mmm, Barbequed pork --a smell that reminds me of Crabfest back home! LOVE <3
That's my cute little shopping basket. It was a bit heavy for me to carry, so of course I made my husband carry it. Just goes to show how confident he is in his masculinity.

I can't say enough how much I love my life with Caleb. I mean yes, marriage is hard and it takes work, but living life with him is an awesome adventure, even in the mundane, everyday things like holding hands to new experiences like going to the farmer's market to shop together. I hope the farmer's market is a tradition we instill in our family, wherever we may be, because I seriously loved it and loved how much fruit and produce we got for under $15! Amazing.

But for now....

Isn't life loverly?

Until next time,
