Martin's Produce Farmstand - Richland

As I was driving from my home to Holland I saw this farmstand in nearby Richland . It just caught my eyes with it's delightful color and bounty. This stand boasted not only the standard fare but a number of heirloom tomatoes and onions ... just BEAUTIFUL!

 

It's a blessing to have farmers selling their locally grown produce to us at farm stands and farmers markets. Unfortunatelly my fridge was filled with vegetables already BUT I will most certainly purchase some of this bounty in future. I strongly believe purchasing locally grown foods is one of the best things we can do to keep ourselves healthy and to support local small farms. This food is simply better for us and better for the earth (just think of all the gasoline saved by not paying for trucks that have to haul the produce across country); it's much fresher and the flavors of these delicious fruits and veggies speak for themselves! ...
