I've been meaning to visit the Forsyth Farmers' Market for quite some time, but never seem to wake up early enough to get there in time for the good stuff. Today, I finally got there early enough. Even friend Mandy was up in time to join me.
The market is located at the south end of Forsyth Park and includes vendors of fruits, vegetables, honey, grain-fed beef, cheese, bread, boiled peanuts, plants, and other local goodies.
Our friend Rachel Hennon sells organic onions that she helped cultivate at Walker Farms Organic Produce in Sylvania.
Castra Rota sells handmade breads from Italy and Germany, while dressed as an authentic Roman (plus straw hat). Mandy and I split the loaf of bread. To accompany the bread, I bought his waxed paper wrapped Caseus authentic ancient Roman gourmet cheese.
He also participates in Roman re-enactments in Brunson, SC.
Mandy: watermelon popsicle, bread, red peppers
Me: bread, cheese, boiled peanuts, chocolate cinnamon plant
Sorry! The boiled peanuts disappeared before I could take their photo.
Disclaimer: While trying to place labels on this post, I could not save any label that used an apostrophe and s (farmers' market) because the blogsite thinks they are ampersands which are also outlawed! So, I guess Blogger doesn't know our friend the apostrophe.
