A Day to Shop at My Local Farmer’s Market

The Farmers Market

Constant overcast

these skies up above my spring

feeling morning chill.


Find a place among

people of similar taste

A Farmer’s Market.


Everyday a grey

with chill that sinks to the bone

take a morning stand.


A movable feast

a fresh cornicopia

from local growers.


Today is today

a stretched canvas of blue sky

a means to an end.


Pallets of oranges

or crates holding fresh green beans

in a plastic bin.


The sun’s temptation

to stop the world in this warmth

take a little walk.

Try this tasty blue plum.
Try this tasty apple…

Our Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

Child on my shoulders

trying a tasty blue plum

a gift from a friend.


This is not an end

beginning of something new

annual blossoms.


let’s feed the hungry

our fresh fruits and vegetables

and reap the rewards.


Second day of blue

a light breezy wisp of wight

lonely figure stands.


Community health

find a peaceful state of mind

benefits of food.


Now the heated blue

pulls upon my need to move

stretch my spirit long.


Let’s not let the bin

hold too much organic rot

save for next years soil.

Let us grow in our yards fruits and vegetables..
Let us grow in our yards fruits and vegetables.

To Share With Our Neighbors

Let’s grow in our yards

to share food with our neighbors

make sure we are fed.


Delicious apples

energy to run and play

here at the market.


Find home in our block

Zucchini for some Black Tea

over abundance.


Tokens and Jewelry

off to the side of the plums

freshly picked cherries.


Money we’ve earned freed

for whatever gives us joy

our entertainment.


A trio performs

jazz by the local honey

battling guitars.


A wealth of fresh food

African Keyhole Gardens

Australian backyard.

Grab a Strawberry..
Grab a Strawberry…

To Keep Our Food Local

Grab a Strawberry

that is perfectly ripened

sweet dance on your tongue.


No need for mileage

no more hauling of great loads

to keep food local.


Forgotten grey skies

filled with leafy vegetables

and colorful fruits.


Small plots in our world

keep small and sustainable

needed to survive.


Life comes from the Earth

reason for this sublime joy

sharing each morsel.


We all need to eat

maybe I speak a fiction

to greet with our food.


We dance and we swing

tasting Cherry Tomatoes

laughing with each bite.

    Great description and feel of a farmer’s market. I shop every Saturday from a farmer’s market: best fruit and veg straight from the earth. Love the feel and pics to accompany this share. Love it.!

    Wonderful sense of the open fresh air, sunny skies, scents of fresh fruits and veggies, and the hum of voices. I love our local farmer’s market, have not been there yet this year, but will go soon. Great imagery in your words, Jamie, and the images give a wonderful nostalgic feeling. Well done, Jamie.

    The local farmers market we have is small but so fragrant and refreshing. All the smells of strawberries to herbs to spices, so nice. Nice work Jamie.

    I love attending the local farmers’ market and obtaining fresh (organic) fruit and vegetables at often a fraction of the price of the Supermarkets and thus cutting out the middle man. Your wonderful haiku inspired poetry captured the feel and abience perfectly. Good work Jamie.
