Welcome to week 3 of Weekend Farmers’ Market Blogging. This weekly series is all about celebrating local eating from the farmers market to the kitchen.
Is there anyone out there?
The idea for Weekend Farmers’ Market Blogging came to me after the generous and positive reaction I received to my post about missing the old days of blogging. The support, camaraderie and friendly debate that sprung up all over was so heartening. It was like a giant chorus of “me too.” It was so heartening to learn that so many other bloggers fondly remember the days when we were a smaller, closer, more personal group who did things like Weekend Farmers’ Market Blogging on the regular.
So far though, the idea isn’t panning out. This is my third WFMB update and the fifth week since I announced it and … crickets. Although I have discovered some great farmers’ market related posts to include in roundups, no one is deliberately joining in the fun. Yet? I hope that’s a yet.
I am not done yet. Eating locally and supporting local agricultural systems is a passion of mine, so I plan to continue WFMB at least through the summer — whether it’s just me or not. But I am hoping others will join in … eventually.
In the meantime, here’s a little about what I wrote this week and some cool posts I found from around the web. Enjoy!
