Davidson Farmers Market – May 15-21

by | May 14, 2020 | Bottom Right Box, Davidson Farmers Market

Hi DFM shoppers and supporters,

Groundhog Day mentality has set in for me. I feel like everyday is the same thing, my daily routine is nothing more than bouncing between my dining room table office and my living room periodically chasing my 17 month old son around. I was beginning to get a little stir crazy, repeating the same thing. I decided to switch up my routine and visit my family’s farm. This brief change in my routine gave me a moment to relax, to have a change in scenery, and to have a brief moment of normalcy.

As we continue in this pandemic, it is important to maintain healthy mental clarity. Many of our farmers have their farms open to the public who are healthy and able to shop. As our weather continues to stay mild, pick a day to visit a farm, to shop, and to say hi to our vendors. I know all of our vendors miss seeing everyone, especially our regular shoppers.

Happy eating,
