Midland Farmers’ Market—Michigan Fruits

In Midland for the week, but not wanting to miss out on a Saturday at the market, I visited the Midland Farmers’ Market with my friend Sarah this morning. She wanted to go in order to find cinnamon rolls from the Amish farmers. I found popcorn from the same vendors… and picked up a few things for my mom. She had asked for thin cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. I couldn’t believe the amount of fresh fruit in Michigan. Take a look:

I couldn’t resist taking home a Honeyrock, the name for the type of cantaloupe that grow locally in Bay County. This one was perfect. Juicy (take a look at the plate), sweet, and truly melt-in-your-mouth.

Along with the honeyrock, there were the cucumbers and tomatoes for Mom, apricots, and a bag of popcorn. What better late-Saturday morning snack than a slice of honeyrock and freshly popped corn from the stovetop?

    Amy,
    If you go, bike! Parking can be challenging.
