North Coast Growers Association Farmers Market

The eating local rubber hits the road at a farmers market — and the Saturday Farmers Market in Arcata is the best I’ve ever been to.  Whenever I travel I always make it a point to check out the local farmers market scene — whether in or out of the country, that’s the place to see the people who raise the food and share it with the rest of us!

So Jessica Eden and I decided to take a little field recorder to a Saturday Farmers Market in Arcata — and we started out with a bang.  Laura from NCGA asked me if I wanted to ring the bell — are you kidding?  I was like a kid in a candy store — and if you were at that market you were probably wondering why the bell ringer wouldn’t stop ringing the bell (just doin’ my job…)

We talked with lots of people that day — people waiting in line for peaches, farmers who were also shoppers, children with strawberries tucked into their red lips!  Listen Here
