After the farmers’ market, I drove over to Aunt Chubby’s to try the iced oat milk latte. I had received a direct message from @barleyhopsbourbon. Unfortunately, the bridge closure at Cherry Valley & Cherry Hill Road in Skillman and the bridge closure at Aunt Molly Road in Hopewell adds fifteen minutes to a what is typically a fifteen-minute drive. I would be at Aunt Chubby’s more often if I did not have to zig-zag my way around these obstacles. The iced latte was a welcome chiller.
When the kids were younger, I would visit the farmers market almost every Saturday during the summer. The kids were in Tae Kwon Do, and the academy was in the same strip mall as the market. I would drop them off, shop, and chat with the local farmers and vendors. I would usually have a treat – hedgehog shaped bread or chocolate croissants – waiting for them at the end of a training session. These days I visit the farmers market by myself, everyone is still in bed when the market opens, but I still bring back treats.
I snagged a photo of this trio, relaxing to the sounds of the market band.
