In the summertime, I really can't get enough of farmer's markets! The ones they have in Colorado are seriously amazing, and while Scott was here we had the chance to check out the Grand Junction farmer's market for the second year in a row. Last year we went and we were blow away by how amazing it was! Most towns in the Phoenix area have their own farmer's markets, but they are nothing like the ones they have here.
Since we got there a little late the area was packed and we had to park a few blocks away. On our walk to the downtown area we passed this sweet colored brick wall and couldn't pass up taking photos in front of it (well, I might have insisted that Scott let me take his photo!).
Downtown was absolutely packed and the whole main strip was blocked off (people were seriously walking around everywhere). The farmer's market was a bit overwhelming, but we made it to the end of the it and back again.
By this point we were both starving and decided to pick out something to eat. Scott got a green chili burrito, and I had a slice of pesto pizza! We also both had the most amazing mint iced tea, and shared cinnamon almonds. Last year I introduced Scott to this sweet treat and he's been hooked ever since!
After we finished our dinner we took another walk around and ended up in a cute antique store that we visited last year as well.
We didn't come home with anything from this little shop, but they sure did have some beautiful, and unique items.
Before we hit the road we picked up some sweet french macaroons from the local bagel shop (raspberry and lemon). They weren't as good as the ones from Essence in Tempe, but they still were very tasty!
What is your favorite part about farmer's markets? Do you go to one often?
