Last Farmer's Market of the season

Shoppers on Cathedral Square
This past weekend, Tom and I rode our bikes over to Cream and Sugar and met up with Mobilians on Bikes for our Saturday morning ride to the farmer's market. This was the last market of the season until it returns in the spring, sometime in April.
Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception
Mobile's Market on the Square is a diverse, centrally located farmers market for growers and shoppers in the tri-state area. The market features some of the best, seasonal produce, meats, handmade soaps and candles, cheese, pasta, seafood, etc.
Pecan Season!
While the market has been steadily gaining popularity (at least over the past two years since moving here), it's still only open for a few months out of the year: April-July and October-November.  With such a long growing season, plus the recent boost in popularity, I'm hoping for a transition to a year-round market soon. Fingers crossed! We had a great time last week, picked up some eggs, met some new friends, and met a bulldog named "Gumbo"! We're excited for the spring market to start already!
Just because the market is over, doesn't mean that you should stop buying local produce. Ang Jordan over at Gulf Coast Local Food has posted several links and resources to help you find produce in the area. In fact, a few weeks earlier, she posted information about picking your own Satsumas over at Sunnyland Satsumas. It runs from November 19-December 19 and it's $1/lb. Tom and I can't wait to get over there and pick our own!
