I couldn’t sleep this morning. My kids have been at the beach with their grandma and today was the day they’d come home. I was awake before 5 am thinking about how to take advantage of this last bit of time before they were back with me. I wasn’t trying to be awake that early, but alas there I was. Instead of tossing and turning for an hour I got up and headed out early, down the road to Asheboro. I arrived at the downtown farmer’s market around 7:15 before all but a few of the earliest of early bird shoppers, just as the farmers were getting their goods on display. Everything sold at this market is grown by the farmer selling it, and it all looked amazingly delicious. On top of that, these must be some of the friendliest of farmers in North Carolina. It was a great way to start my day.
