Over the weekend I broke out of my rut and tried a new farmers market. I have been going to the West Allis Farmers Market for about 20 years, so I have some loyalty. But I had heard good things about the Wauwatosa Farmers Market, it is a lot closer, and well, check out their sign to the left.
Even though they had a bike with a basket on their sign, I had no expectations that there would be a lot of bikes there. At the West Allis Farmers Market, there are usually only a couple bikes in addition to mine. But I could not have been more wrong. There were so many bikes there that the bike racks were full and people had to lock up to any fence or pole available.
Along with all the bikes came the people who rode them there. I ran into a few friends there. And I made a new aquaintence, 9-week-old Nora who rolled in with Nate and Amanda.
There were a lot of great farmers and other vendors there. I hate to change a tradition, but the ’Tosa Farmers Market won me over. I will be going there every weekend from now on.
