If you’ve spent any time in Baltimore over the last few days, you know that the sun has unleashed its scorching wrath on the city and its inhabitants for far too long now. So, what can bring a lazy twenty year old out of the comforts of her air-conditioned apartment and into the depths of this elemental assault? The summertime delights of the 32nd Street Farmer’s Market, of course!
The farmer’s market has something practical for everyone – from classic seasonal vegetables and fruits to exotic Ethiopian cuisine and clothing, they cover pretty much every spectrum. If you are on the market for something trendy and different – this is the perfect one-stop location for all your creative and artsy needs. I mean, where else in the world can one buy Cajun flavored peanut butter or pistachio butter?!
The Farmer’s Market invites spirited minds and friendly native Baltimoreans alike. This nice gentleman below noticed me snapping away with my oversized camera and immediately walked over to ask a few questions of the snapshot-happy collegiate.
I figure I owe it to him and his great hand gestures to put him in this blog post.
While everyone knows that seasonally grown fruits and vegetables taste incredible, most people may not realize that you don’t have to break the bank to get them. The Farmer’s Market has plenty of incredible deals as long as you take the time to scope them out. In fact, many farmers try to sell their riper fruits at once for very low prices. I walked away with 2 quarts of ripe peaches for only $1! Guess which delicious fruit has been going right in my oatmeal this past week?
The 32nd Street Farmer’s Market is open on Saturdays from 7 AM to 12 PM. If you haven’t been a Farmer’s Market enthusiast before, at least try to hit it up once during the summertime. I myself got to try free samples of seasonal cherries, blueberries, and peaches. Try some samples, scope out the unique vendors, and be on the lookout for some incredible deals. You might want to be quick, before all the pistachio butter is gone!
