Farmers Markets and Stamps

Wondering how many of you folks enjoy going to the Farmers Markets in your area.  Here in the Sacramento region, we have LOTS of them to choose from and almost on a daily basis you can find one within a relatively short distance from your home.

For our family thee are at least 4 large markets open over the week.  The largest being the downtown Farmers Market open every Sunday under the freeway.  Boasted as the largest Certified markets in the area - open year round.

If you are on your way to the coast to cool off, one of my favs is Sunset Magazines as well.

The scene: Outside Toby's Feed Barn, it's all about straw hats, local gossip, and live bluegrass. This low-key, all-organic market has only a handful of booths, but in a teeny, never-too-touristy town, it's a prime example of how quality trumps quantity.
The find: Look for a simple white banner in back that says G.B.D. That stands for Golden, Brown, Delicious: Osteria Stellina organic bread oozing with Cowgirl Creamery cheese, a fried egg, and a fat, juicy tomato slice if you so choose. Grab a hay bale and enjoy.

SO, where does this fit in with the stamps??  The USPS is putting out a set that I will be getting a few sheets for.  The Summer Harvest collection

Love the graphic artwork as I am a sucker for this type of lettering.

Don't these just make you want to seek these produce items out??

So this summer, do yourself a favor and seek out FRESH produce at Your local farmers market and support your local organic/certified producer.


  1. We do have farmer's markets here in Vegas, but they are not very good. Every time I go to California to visit family, my husband and I stop at a farmers market so I can bring some produce home with us.

    I love the graphics on these stamps as well. These are my favorite stamps that have come out in a long time.

  2. I am on my way to the fabulous Civic Center Farers Market here in SF right now -- and the Library Steps Sale (all books $1) right next door. Tomatoes and books -- what could be better? And I will surely be at the PO on Saturday to buy those fabulous stamps too!

  3. Our FMs are too far away from Katy, but once in awhile farmers set up produce stands for people like me. I get to buy some of what I cannot grow in our raised bed and garden, freeze or can it, and I'm as happy as if I grew it myself. I pre-ordered stamps for the first time because of these stamps. :)
