Life in a Northern Town

Why I Love August

There are lots of reasons why I love August: fireflies, gardens in full bloom, summer vacation and the farmer's market. Bayfield has a farmer's market every Saturday from 8:45 to Noon and it has become a Saturday ritual for me. I grab my tote bag and whatever kid is awake and we head down the hill. Yesterday was tomato heaven, I bought every shape, size and color I could get my hands on. Sliced tomato with Maldon sea salt and good balsamic vinegar tastes like August and I look forward to my first bite every year.
