Every Friday, Highland Park hosts a farmers market on the main street from 11:00 am - 5:30 pm. I love going to it for many reasons. First off, it brings the entire community together. As I walk through the line of tents/booths I can spot people from many different ethnicities and religions. It amazes me that in a small town there can be such a wide variety of people living among each other! Another reason I enjoy going to the farmers market is because Highland Park is a walking community so I am able to walk from my office. As I walk in the direction of the market I join many different types of people coming together to support local farmers. Summer days at the farmers market reminds me of when I used to buy almost all of my produce from local farmers!
CJ from Melicks Town Farm told me - "I like everyone's mood when they come to the farmers market. It is an opportunity to take a break from all the hustle and bustle." The Farmers Market is not only a place for me to purchase delicious fruit and vegetables but is also a great way for me to support local farmers and be a part of the community!
