{the Country Life}

When I walk through our local Farmer's Market in Oakland it feels like I'm strolling down a country lane. That is until I notice the prices. Sure there are lots of other places to shop for locally sourced foodstuff and for a lot cheaper but I enjoy this Saturday excursion for a different reason: the people. I contend there are few other Farmer's Markets in the country that can even begin to rival the diversity of Oakland's crowd. This assorted tribe succeeds in creating a colorful and scrumptious weekly event hawking everything from Himalayan spiced chicken wraps to Pakistani stuffed flat breads to fresh Butter fish to locally made Elvis inspired peanut butter and bacon dog treats. Come to the Grand Lake Farmers Market and see the world!
