South Side Farmers Market

I did it, I ventured forth to a rather scary part of the Fort this morning. Why? Because I wanna be green. And the best way it seems is to buy local, organic food. The Amish don't have much yet and besides I was in the mood for an adventure. What fun! This place has been here since oh I don't know before my dad was born. It seemed like a cross between a farmers market and a flea market. I love flea markets so it was like a double bonus. Did I get any great deals - no. Definatly not unless you count the 2 Valentines plates I bought for my plate collection. Was the selection good - fair not good.,but I think this will improve as the summer moves on. Were the people friendly - absolutely. Will I be going back??? You bet! I wouldn't miss it for the world!

South Side Market is on Warsaw Street between Rudisill and Pontiac. The hours are from 7am -1am on Saturdays in the summer.

There is also several amish places much closer to home, Schmuckers on Doty Rd. (quite large with a great selection. Everything isn't "theirs" but they let you know if it is. As you drive around in the Woodburn, Harlan, Grabill area you will run into many more. I am grateful for the choices. I hadn't thought of these Amish stores as 'farmers markets' but duh! Of course they are! Just not as fun as South Side!

The moral to the story - get out there and hunt for your local stores and markets. It is like I tell my family: I am saving the world one organic strawberry at a time. or reused ziploc baggie, or not using paper plates etc, it is how I am saving the world ONE thing at a time! What next? Public Transportation. I have to drive 6 miles to catch a bus to the other side of the Fort. Is it worth it? I wish I had a reason to go now just to try it out. Wish me luck - I am a total wimp.
God Bless,
