The Charlottetown Farmers’ Market is often talked about in our circles.
I guess this is because we like:
and all that good stuff.
Well, every time I heard tell of the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market I’d frown and say, “Oh, well, wait a minute, I’ve never been there, so… um… uh. Sorry. I just don’t quite get what you’re talking about…”
They’d say, “What? You have to go!”
I’d frown and say, in a very sad voice, “I know.”
But this past Saturday we finally made it to the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market!
The Charlottetown Farmers’ Market is a year-round market that stays set up inside this lovely green building on Belvedere Street, in Charlottetown, PE.
There are many vendors inside and out.
What a place!
There was organic produce, plants, handmade jewelry, pottery, clothing, and more…
But, best of all, there was an abundance of amazing ready-to-eat food. In fact, there was so much selection we just wandered like confused chickens wanting to peck as much as possible.
After purchasing a few items, including fresh crispy rhubarb, our thoughts turned to lunch.
We considered homemade spicy mushroom soup, smoothies, handmade sandwiches, African food, Indian food, Asian food, and more. Finally we each chose our Saturday lunch…
Now, the very sad news is that my gourmet vegetarian sandwich with havarti and carrot-bread was gobbled up by me before I even thought of stopping to take a photo of it.
Cameron finally settled on a delicious falafel wrap, which was also gobbled up before any cameras could be unleashed.
But unfortunately I do have much evidence of us having consumed mini-donuts.
But yet, so…delicious.
So now when someone starts chatting to me about the Farmers’ Market I can grin and say, “I know!”
