I’m a bit crazy about the food I feed my children. Yell, at my TV during Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, crazy. In my own defense Your Honor, I don’t believe the French fry is a veggie. At least not the kind of veggie I get at the Farmers’ Market. I have yet to see the crinkle cut between the kale and the chard. You?
I mean You, Your Honor?
Moving on, and back to the veggies. One of my most favorite aspects of the spring and summer is our local Farmers’ Market. Oh the colors, the dirt still on the carrots, the smells, the textures. What I love most, is the experience of having my little sidekicks with me…
Okay, the truth be told, what I love most is the idea of taking the sidekicks. Because there have been times where I’ve found the Farmers’ Market juggle of two market lovin’ girls, a most important cup of coffee and an armful of veggies I can’t live without to be a bit difficult.
My middle school P.E. teacher can attest to my juggling skills based on my 7th grade performance with scarves. Not pretty.
I should say this was my dilemma until this little darling French basket came rolling into my life…
I love this sweet little French Market basket on wheels as it allows me to shop at will, have hands free to engage the sidekicks, and enjoy my morning coffee.
Have I said I love it? Well I do. I L.O.V.E it!
And yes, Elle and Maggie, that means I would marry it.
That is if I wasn’t already totally in love and married to your father… you know?!
Do you have a Farmers’ Market tip or two to share?
Don’t be shy, we’re all ears.
Note: If you are in the market for a rolling basket I’ve found a beautiful site that carries well crafted baskets, they are an investment but well worth it. I’ve done a lot of research on the rolling French Market Basket and many of the companies (including where I bought mine) have discontinued them.
