Even though we only live about 20 minutes from the beach, we unfortunately don’t make it there as often as we would like. When we do take the time we always look at each other and say “Why don’t we do this more often?” It’s so relaxing and nice to get away, but life just being life.. we just can’t do it every weekend.
We love the sand between our toes and the sounds of the ocean, but one of our favorite things to do is to walk through the farmers market that is held every Saturday morning. Local farmers and craftsman and delicious local treats make this one of my favorite things to do on the weekends.
Tomazin Farms is a local farmer who always has a wonderful choice of fresh vegetables to choose from. It’s always fun to walk up and down their tables trying to think what different recipes I can make and when they aren’t too busy, I like talking to the owners about how they grow their produce (with non gmo seeds – Yes!) and the best way to keep bugs away.
Mason Bar has a cute cafe on one of the main roads going into the beach, but they also have a booth at the market. They make some incredibly tasty frozen fruit bars that are all natural and made right in their cafe.
Not only do they make fruit bars, but they also make amazing fresh, cold organic juices, and my favorite, the “Cacao” No-Cow that is a Cold Brew Organic Coffee, Handcrafted with Pumpkin Seed Milk, “Cacao”, Maca, Coconut Sugar, Reishi, and Local Vanilla. That drink is AHH-Mazing!
A dear friend of mine sells her beautiful Fair Trade baskets, Bolga Baskets, here. I love to see the new styles that she gets in and she always has a great story from the people of Africa who make them.
On this day, the Piano Bike guy (I don’t know what his real name is, I just called him that) was there. I didn’t realize at first that his piano was actually attached to the bike, but hey.. whatever works.
