I paid my first visit to the Decatur Farmers' Market. It is located in a thankfully shady corner of the First Baptist Church. It has a good number of real ingredient vendors plus a good selection of prepared food vendors. Here are a few of the purveyors that I had a chance to visit.
Mountain Earth Farms has a beautiful selection of vegetables. I took home some perfectly ripe tomatoes.
Watson Peaches offers both organic and non-organic peaches. I took home several of each for my first batch of peach preserves of the year. The batch turned out beautifully peachy.
Partnership Farms offered beautiful vegetables and, if memory serves me correctly, some meats as well. I bought a head of cabbage that I turned into a wonderful batch of tangy cole slaw.
