Fresh food aplenty today

Some folks forget that we have a farmers market that’s been open daily in town for years. If you’re wide awake and you’re wondering what to do this morning before the heat settles in again today, you may want to head over to the Alabama Farmers Market (344 Finley Avenue) and enjoy their second annual Family & Friends Festival.

If you read this a little later in the morning, you’ve got until 1 p.m. to get over there to enjoy free hot dogs, chips & sodas, live music, food samples, grilling demonstrations, kids activities… (taking breath), and the best tasting tomato & heaviest tomato contests.

We’ve also heard a rumor that Franklin Biggs will be there doing a cooking demo with samples of his baby blue salad on hand, but we couldn’t confirm it, so don’t get mad at us if he’s not. If he is though, maybe he’ll do something similar to what he did to celebrate his restaurant’s 10th anniversary earlier this summer.

If you can’t make it, there’s always the Pepper Place Farmers Market and the East Lake Farmers Market to keep you stocked up for the week.
