Raleigh Farmers Market


Today my friend, Laura, and I headed down to the state farmers market.  I was impressed with the herbs, plants, and trees that were available; not even to mention the potatoes, strawberries, asparagus, garlic, onions, and lots of greens.  We had a great time, it was not overly crowded like I was afraid it might be, and only took about 30 minutes to get there.
