Saturday Farmer’s Market

Have you ever gone to a Farmer’s market on a Saturday morning?  It’s amazing how many people are up early to get out into the fresh air and buy fresh, local produce.  I went to one in Alexandria the other day; lots of people, lots of good stuff!

It was a summer harvest on display, no doubt about that, and all fresh from the farm.  There were vegetables of every sort that you might expect in late summer, and fruit and herbs too.

Aside from the variety and quality of the produce, I was struck at God’s creative artistry.  All of the different varieties of edible plant life that He has created, the variety of color, the variety of taste… and the ingenuity of Man that enable us to grow things from all over the world in an area close to the big city.  What a glorious display of God’s greatness!

The grocery stores won’t appreciate this, but when you go out to the Farmer’s market and buy fruit and vegetables… and then you take them home and prepare and eat them, you’re hooked!  The grocery store simply cannot compete with the colors and flavors.  Thank you, Lord for the amazing quality of your handiwork!
