union square farmers market


Today is a beautiful day, perfect for visiting the Union Square farmers market that takes place every weekend. It is huge! vendor after vendor selling fresh produce, eggs, cheese, baked goods, flowers and herbs. So many people! It was quite crowded, but it is really fun to go to and see that all this locally grown stuff is available.

I went mainly with intentions of buying some flowers and a hanging plant or two. I was looking for a good place, and the farmers market was suggested to me by a few people, for the wide selection, good prices and the chance to support local/small businesses. The vendor I bought the flowers from had sooo many beautiful flowers to choose from, it was really hard to pick! I also ended up getting a small hanging plant called a "bolivian jew" ha. And that is just to start my collection, I hope to get some more hanging plants and succulents and things being that I have some nice windowsills to put them in. I just hope my cats leave them alone!

Going to the farmers market is one of my favorite things to do on the weekend. All the food tastes so much better than at the grocery store. Your outfit looks perfect for such a summer weather outing. Cute! I can't wait to see more of your plants as you collect them.

I love the farmer's market so much. It's actually available year round, except it isn't that large and populated in the colder months, but it's still pretty awesome!

And your outfit looks perfect for the sweltering heat. I get so sweaty once I step into the subway station, I'm basically drenched!

Amazing photos! I love your style! I especially love the picture at the bottom, those flowers are amazing, they look a bit like strawberries.
