NC Farmers: Walker Farms

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
I don’t know if I appreciated farmers’ markets as much growing up as I do now. Yesterday, Mom and I headed over the NC State Farmers’ Market to pick up some vegetables for dinner. I traveled around, eyeing what everyone brought from their farms and orchards and vineyards. Tasted a peach. Looked longingly at the scuppernongs and muscadines and the brilliant colors from all the peppers. The sweet corn made my mouth water.
We stayed for a while speaking with Cathy who was a very nice customer service helper for Walker Farms. She told us all about their German Tomatoes (so good for dinner), their varieties of squash and zucchini (also a winner), Mr Stripey tomotoes, the 9 varieties of eggplant they grew, as well the 14 different kinds of peppers. Loved her knowledge and her kindness in sharing some recipes and tastes with me. We bought much for $3.35 cents (you can do that at most places) and journeyed on.
So…support your local farmers. Especially this one in Randolph County. Contact info:
